Behind the Scenes: Google Explains How it Identifies Landmarks

The move is likely intended to boost accuracy of its machine-learning algorithms by getting third-party devs to use them. Thanks to machine-learning algorithms, Google Photos can detect the landmarks in your photos. Third-party developers can use these powerful algorithms in their own apps, too, and Google is trying to sell them on why they should. Google uses a multi-step process, which its developers refer to as a “landmark mining pipeline,” to identify which point of interest you’ve caught in front of your lens. Here’s how it works, according to a post on Google’s engineering blog: “If the pipeline identifies an image as a possible landmark, it is sent to the next step of the pipeline for clustering. Photos are then clustered in two ways: by geolocation data and by visual…
