The first camera was made in 1827. Photography has changed considerably ever since. It is about to change even more, due to new advances in artificial intelligence.
How AI is Changing the Future of Photography
Artificial intelligence has been a disruptive technology in many ways. It has played a crucial role in training simulations, video games, business decision-making and countless other applications.
However, few people anticipated that it would play such a profound role in the future of photography. Here are some changes it has brought.
Matching Users to the Right Images
Social media websites have used artificial intelligence to develop a better understanding of their users. They use this technology to match content to their users. They can see what images are trending and make sure it shows up in the feed of users that have engaged with similar content in the past.
New AI tools are studying photographs to develop a better understanding of the subjects. A new technology is being developed that could identify signs of depression from photographs.
Superior Editing Capabilities
Editing photographs isn’t easy. You need a strong background with Photoshop to edit them on your own. However, many people lack this expertise, so they would prefer using a more automated tool.
Many new photo editing tools rely more on AI technology, so they can remove unsightly marks from the images. Photolemur and Picturesque are two of the newest AI solutions on the market.
Higher quality photo editing tools are in higher demand these days. With the popularity of Instagram and other social networking sites, more people are sharing their pictures with their friends, so they want to provide higher quality images. This wouldn’t be possible without new AI capabilities.
Newest AI Based Photography Tools
As artificial intelligence becomes more sophisticated, more startups are using it to provide better solutions to photographers. Here are some of the top AI-based photography tools.
Aurora HDR is a photo editing tool made specifically for Mac users. Although it is more discriminatory than other tools, it is still one of the most sophisticated on the market.
The Phoblogropher gave a very flattering review of it. They refer to it as the “ultimate HDR solution.”The Aurora HDRapp has been remarkably useful for many other photographers.
Picturesqe is a new startup that serves two important purposes:
- It helps photographers choose from their best pictures. It’s algorithms have an easier time recognizing images that photographers can work with.
- It has a number of automated filtering tools that even the least experienced photographer can work with.
Daniel Szollosi, CEO of Picturesqe, says it also saves time for experienced photographers.
“The problem is that professional photographers take thousands of photos and have to spend countless hours to manually delete wrong shots and select the best ones,” Szollosi told TechCrunch. “Speed to market is a crucial factor, such as in live sports. And in other fields (e.g. weddings, events) dozens of pictures are very similar, so that the final selection becomes an expensive, time-consuming task.”
Photolemur is a new photo editing tool that is known as “the world’s first fully automated photo enhancement solution.” It doesn’t require any input to create exceptional quality images.
“Photolemur’s mission is to bridge the gap between what our eyes see and what our cameras record,” CMO NazarBegen told Peta Pixel. “Photolemur doesn’t alter the reality of your photos, but makes them more beautiful and natural. Just like what you saw when you took the photos. Plus it doesn’t require learning or even heavy involvement. It does everything for you.”
