Every year the manufacturers of smartphones is becoming increasingly difficult to improve the hardware of the cameras. That’s why major players like Google are turning to the possibilities of machine learning. The result of the last cooperation of the company c Massachusetts Institute of technology (MIT) was the unusual photo editor. It can be used to improve the image as would a professional photographer — and in real time before the shutter is released.
The researchers used machine learning to create an algorithm. During testing, the neural network was chosen five photos created by Adobe and MIT. Each image was retouched by five different photographers. Then, the resulting images were used in order to determine how to improve each image by adjusting the brightness, lower saturation, and other opportunities.
As the researchers report, photo editor weighs no more than one digital image can be used for processing images in a variety of styles.
It is assumed that the photo editor will be able to reproduce the style of a particular photographer, in the same way as, for example, Prisma can recreate the style of famous artists. Details about the work of the photo editor can be found on the official website of MIT.
