Canon’s New Speedlite 470EX-AI Shows How Fast Computational Photography Is Moving – PhotoShelter Blog

Canon’s New Speedlite 470EX-AI Shows How Fast Computational Photography Is Moving – PhotoShelter Blog We previously wrote about the state of computational photography in September 2017. Included within that piece was a reference to the work by Kukas Murmann, Abe Davis, Jan Kautz and Frédo Durand who built a prototype flash mounted on a servo […]

OK Computer: Computational photography is here to stay!

OK Computer: Computational photography is here to stay! Whilst many photographers remain deep in conversation concerning the evolution from analog to digital photography—and the positives and negatives of both—the world of photographic technology has paid little heed to their protestations and continued on with its research and development. As a result, we find ourselves today — in […]

How an A.I. ‘Cat-and-Mouse Game’ Generates Believable Fake Photos – The New York Times

How an A.I. ‘Cat-and-Mouse Game’ Generates Believable Fake Photos – The New York Times At a lab in Finland, a small team of Nvidia researchers recently built a system that can analyze thousands of (real) celebrity snapshots, recognize common patterns, and create new images that look much the same — but are still a little […]

Do Facebook and Google have control of their algorithms anymore? A sobering assessment and a warning | Poynter

Do Facebook and Google have control of their algorithms anymore? A sobering assessment and a warning | Poynter Platforms rely on these algorithms to perform actions at scale, but algorithms at scale also become increasingly inscrutable, even to the people who wrote the code. In her recent TED Talk about the complexity of AI, Zeynep […]

What Photographers Need to Know About Computational Photography

What Photographers Need to Know About Computational Photography In a panel at PhotoPlus Expo, several experts explored scenarios for what computational photography will mean for creative professionals. The short answer: more immersive virtual reality, smaller and lighter cameras that nonetheless perform as well if not better than DSLRs and the embedding of more information inside […]

Ubiquitous photography – Kaptur

Ubiquitous photography – Kaptur One of the most important announcement during Google latest release event has mainly passed under the radar or simply dismissed as a gadget. The Pixel Clip camera is a small device that can be attached anywhere and, using a simple A.I.,  continuously takes photos when it recognizes familiar faces. Perfect for busy parents who […]
