PlaNet, Google’s latest AI, has superhuman accuracy with photo locations

Thanks to Google, a new artificial intelligence system is outperforming humans in spotting the origins of images.Google has unveiled a new system to identify where photos are taken. The task, simple when images contain famous landmarks or unique architecture, goes beyond the overt to examine small clues hidden in the pixels.The program, named PlaNet, uses a deep-learning neural network, which means the more images PlaNet sees, the smarter it gets.The impressive part? Its geotagging abilities are already better than any other program or human, and it’s still getting smarter. “PlaNet is able to localize 3.6% of the images at street-level accuracy and 10.1% at city-level accuracy. 28.4% of the photos are correctly localized at country level and 48.0% at continent level,” wrote the research team. That’s still a long way from…
