Google AI Is Starting To Figure Out Where a Photo Was Taken Based Solely on the Background

Wikimedia Commons Feb 25, 2016 Image recognition software has grown by leaps and bounds in the past few years, fueled in part by the increasing sophistication of artificial intelligence. While companies like Wolfram Alpha have put neural nets to the test in image recognition, Google has taken a special shine to it. It taught its brains to find objects. It learned to recognize faces across multiple photos.  But now, it seems, Google wants to take the next logical step: background recognition.  Advertisement – Continue Reading Below Specifically, Google’s neural nets are focusing on figuring out the location a photo was taken based on the background of the image. To do this, it created a deep database of 126 million images, all of them previously geotagged. By applying that to map data, it created a…
