Technology vigorously transformed almost everything. With time new applications hit the ground with innovation and reality checks. Considering the era of artificial intelligence (AI) a camera app developed that will remove people from the pictures.
As part of an art project, an artist Damjanski created AI app with the name ‘Bye Bye Camera’ for ‘post-human era’ that simply removes any people from the captured pictures and paints over their absence.
The app was inspired by the threats posed to humans by climate change and the like. “We’re thinking about a future where humanity is no longer around,” he said. “One of the things I really enjoy is that the app takes out humans, but it keeps their shadows.”
The app works by using some of the artificial intelligence (AI) tools including object detection ‘YOLO’ (You Only Look Once), which can immediately identify the outline of a person.
Then with the help of another artificial intelligence (AI) tool, the person is simply deleted from the taken picture and filled in with the background.
However, Bye Bye Camera is only available to be downloaded on iOS App Store for now.
Moreover, AI has the potential to become more intelligent than any human, we have no surefire way of predicting how it will behave. We can’t use past technological developments.
