Photos and videos are now searchable data. Facebook, Google leading the charge in Artificial intelligence scouring our photos and videos for data. Computer algorithms which recognise what was going on in the photo/video, who was in the photo (yes!), what they were doing , what colours were involved. Think of the hassle free organisation all of your photos and video's! Think of the benefits to crime prevention!
Artificial intelligence (AI) covers a whole swathe of areas, including anything from robotics to gaming, but its basis rests solely on big data, and how it analyses such. When it comes to today’s leading areas of AI research, we are quickly drawn to image recognition. Why? Well, it’s the best example yet of computers catching up with humans – though they’re a fair bit off just yet. Social media, you might be surprised to read, is actually driving a lot of today’s image recognition developments. That’s largely because social media itself is entirely structured through big data, with each operator quickly becoming experts in this field.
