PlaNet: Google's system that identifies where you took your photos

A team led by Tobias Weyand, a senior software engineer at Google, was able to develop a very interesting (or scary, depending on your point of view) artificial intelligence system. This is because it can identify the places where you took your pictures without your having to say.

Called PlaNet, the simple system works: By identifying a photo, it analyzes pixel by pixel and compares its data with 90 million other indexed images that are stored in its databases. From then on, the software crosses your photo's references, details and patterns to identify where it was recorded, but with incredible precision.

PLANET "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" PLANET-w782.jpeg 782w, 596w, jpeg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />

<p>In the first PlanNet test, the system was able to identify the country where a photo was taken in 28.4% of cases; And when it came to finding out which continent, the level of accuracy was 48%. It seems little, except for one detail: at the time the platform had only 2.3 million images in its database. Now with 90 million images, the hit ratio is expected to rise considerably. </p><div class='code-block code-block-3' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

Weyland and his team have not yet announced a date when PlaNet will be available to the general public. But such software coupled with Google Maps or Android camera software fits nicely on our smartphones.

And what did you think of PlaNet? Will it be very useful in your photos or will it work like a mobile finger?
