As a misanthrope living in a vibrant city, I can not complain about anything. And especially the problem of people getting into my photos, whatever I take pictures, is stubborn. Bye Bye Camera, an app that simply removes all people from your photos, will not be a problem anymore. Finally!
It is an art project by Do Something Good, even if it is a practical project (art can be practical!). The collective, especially the artist damjanski, has been working on a variety of playful approaches to the digital age, such as a CAPTCHA that excludes people, and has established a dialogue between two Google interlocutors.
The new app damjanski said artnome, is "an app for the post-human era … the app takes the vanity of any selfies and even the person." Fortunately, dogs remain intact. conscious, artistic way – are humans necessary? What makes you look good? How will the world be without us? You can think about these questions or not. Luckily, the app does not need it from you.
Bye Bye Camera uses some of the AI tools that are already available for entry into the world of research. It uses YOLO (You Only Look Once), a very efficient object classifier that quickly identifies a person's outline, and a separate tool that does what Adobe calls "context-sensitive stuffing" reliable – if somewhat coarse – of everyone Image deleted and credibly filled in from the background nature of humanity, but also the accessibility of tools under the general category "AI" and what they can and what they should be used for.
You can download Bye Bye Camera for $ 3 from the iOS App Store.
