Back in October 2017, Google announced Clips, a device that housed a camera that would capture the moments of your life. Using artificial intelligence, the camera would snap random pictures throughout the day, all without a user's input.
Some people might think that this is all done by a fancy algorithm – and, for the most part, they’d be correct in that assumption. But Google also revealed something really interesting about the Clips product.
Namely, Clips was trained in photography by professionals.
That’s right – the AI-powered camera uses what Google calls “human-centered machine learning,” which sounds terrifying until you learn what that means in practice.
