Google’s New Algorithm Perfects Photos Before You Even Take Them



Taking instagram-worthy photos is one thing—editing them is another. Most of us just upload a pic, tap a filter, tweak the saturation, and post. If you want to make a photo look good without the instant gratification of the Reyes filter, enlist a professional. Or a really smart algorithm.

Researchers from MIT and Google recently showed off a machine learning algorithm capable of automatically retouching photos just like a professional photographer. Snap a photo and the neural network identifies exactly how to make it look better—increase contrast a smidge, tone down brightness, whatever—and apply the changes in less than 20 milliseconds.

“That’s 50 times a second,” says Michael Gharbi, an MIT doctoral student and lead author of the paper. Gharbi’s algorithm transforms photos so fast you can see the edited version in the viewfinder before you snap the picture.
