New Google Technology Can Automatically Describe Images

/ 3 years ago


Google has unveiled an interesting new technology that can automatically analyse images and provide in some cases, accurate descriptions of what appears in those images.

The “intelligent computer vision software” can scan a collection of images and provide general descriptions of what can be seen. Those descriptions can then be tagged to the images and used to make a Google search more accurate or to, according to Google, “eventually help visually impaired people understand pictures” and “provide alternate text for images in parts of the world where mobile connections are slow”.

While the technology isn’t yet completely accurate for every single image, it does however produce rather amazing results for some images:
