Tech giant Microsoft has recently released a new feature for its AI-powered camera app in the iPhone and iPad. The feature automatically turns the photos into creative snapshots reminiscent of paintings exhibiting in the celebrated galleries of Amsterdam, Paris and New York.
A part of inclusive update for Microsoft Pix for iOS, the feature has been developed working with Microsoft’s Asia lab and Skype. The application very well uses a variety of intellectual algorithms made by Microsoft researchers to take the guesswork out of getting great photos with every tap of the shutter button.
Explaining further, Josh Weisberg, a principal program manager in the Computational Photography Group, said “In the past, a lot of our efforts were focused on using AI and deep learning to capture better moments and better image quality. This is more about fun. I want to do something cool and artistic with my photos.”
Pix is quite different from filters which are used by popular photo sharing apps like Instagram and Snapchat, where one can consistently altered color of photos, as Pix style transfers texture, pattern and tones of the selected style to the photo, changing it into a separate formation. One more benefit it adds is Pix Styles works straight on the device, devoid of accessing the cloud to run the calculation.
The all new feature by Pix is well suitable for originality and sharing exclusive images on social media platforms. Also the Microsoft Pix is in plans to trait a collection of newly styled pictures aged with #PixStyling on Pix’s Instagram. Well, this is not something new adapted, as we all are aware that photo editor Prisma was the first to actually make style-transfer techniques mainstream.
