Google Photos’ Memories feature is enhanced by AI
Google possesses announced some improvements to Google Photos during its Google I / O keynote, thanks to Machine Learning / AI. Google Photos has offered the “Memories” feature for some time, but it will improve soon.
AI will dramatically increase Google Photos’ Memories functionality
The company will use machine learning to do a better job of resurfacing photos. It will go beyond resurfacing photos based on themes. It will be able to detect not so obvious visual patterns in your photos.
If Google Photos spots a set of three or more photos that share things like shape or color, it’ll highlight those little patterns for you in your memories. Google even gave an example.
One of the company employees had quite a few pictures in which he had an orange backpack. Looks like he hiked with his family / friends. Well, Google highlighted these images and put them under one memento, calling it “Adventures of the Orange Backpack”.
This feature will be available “later this summer,” the company said. This is all the uptime information we got, no specific timeframe was shared.
Google Photos will also be able to highlight the memories of the times you celebrate.
Later this year, Google will add additional functionality to Google Photos’ Memories. It will be able to highlight the memories of the times you celebrate, such as Diwali, Lunar New Year, Hanukkah, etc.
These memories will appear as you scroll through your photo grid, along with the “best memories of the month” and “highlights of the trip,” which the company is starting to roll out today.
The “ cinematic moments ” are coming soon
Something called “Cinematic Moments” is also coming to Google Photos. So if you capture multiple images which are almost the same as we tend to get to get the perfect image Google will be able to create something interesting with it.
He will be able to use neural networks to synthesize the movement between two almost identical photos and fill in the gaps with new frames. In this way, he will be able to create a moving image, or as the company calls it, “cinematic moment”.
Starting today, you will also be able to rename a highlight from Trip or delete it altogether. You will also be able to delete a single photo from a memory, delete the best memories of the month, and rename or delete memories according to the times you are celebrating. This feature is coming soon, but we’re not sure when exactly.
The “ Folder Locked ” feature will keep your private images out of the general flow
Last, but not least, the company announced “Folder Locked”. This is a password protected area where you can save photos separately. That way, they won’t appear on your feed as you scroll, to avoid prying eyes. The locked folder comes first on Pixels.
