How Google Photos tells the difference between dogs, cats, bears, and any other animal in your photos
Google at its I/O developer conference last week took the wraps off of Google Photos, the company’s new photo software that provides users with unlimited cloud storage for both photos and videos. Of course, unlimited storage is just one of many reasons why Google’s exciting new photo sharing service is poised to make quite a splash.
Leveraging Google’s expertise in machine learning, Google Photos can smartly organize your photos based on categories such as people, places, and things. Google is able to do this by combining its facial recognition software with information gleaned from geo-tagged photos. But what’s even more impressive is that Google has developed software capable of recognizing “things.”
