Google's Robots are Solving the Biggest Problem in Modern Photography
J Thoendell stashed this in Tech
Google correctly recognizes that the worst part of modern photography is figuring out what to do with all the pictures we take. And now it’s doing something for you with a new feature for Google+ Photos called Stories.
“There are products that think of photos as files, and there are products that think of photos as photos,” explains Google’s Ben Eidelson, a product manager for Google+ Photos. “But what we’re trying to do is think of photos as moments. This is a moment in your life that you want to do something with.”
Stories is a new Google+ Photos feature that automates photo album creation. It collects your photos and videos into natural groupings–like a weekend trip you took to the mountains, or a child’s soccer game–clustered around out-of-the ordinary moments. Then it builds a narrative for you around those clusters of photos, almost instantly and without any action on your part.
