Google Photos update improves display of memories using formative AI


Google Photos just got a major update that adds generated AI to the popular Memories view. This toolkit already creates scrapbook montages using your photos and videos, but now those montages will be even more personalized, with logical combinations based on your life. 
AI-enhanced algorithms will group images into relevant categories, and create a catchy title to accompany the montage The app already does this, one way or another, but an update would have to be something of a radical improvement and that's AI so it won't always get things right, viz. Else you can rename the groups or edit the montage if needed.
And all those scrapbook montages are now collected in a custom view, called Memories, so you only interact with them when you want to. Before that, Google Photos users received an instant notification every time a new scrapbook was available to look at. Just tap the Memories tab and go. The new tab also provides access to previously released features, such as adding music to scrapbook montages and sharing memories via the app.
The update also allows these scrapbook entries to be created by sharing with friends and family. Invite anyone to collaborate and they can contribute their own photos and videos. Everyone involved can delete any images that don't match the appearance or make minor edits, and the system itself will recommend images based on geolocation and the like for more robust sharing options, and Google says you'll soon be able to save these collections as common video formats to send through messaging apps and social networks. . 
The new Google Photos update begins rolling out today in the US, but the company says it will be a few months before a real global launch. This isn't the first time this year that the company has pushed generative AI into Google Photos. Back in May, Google used these Technology to improve the Magic Editor toolkit, which takes advantage of artificial intelligence to remove unwanted artifacts from images.
