Old pictures

Maybe you have a photo with a substantial hole in it that you want to fill in, but the section mission is a complex background. This deep learning tool offers an impressive, albeit not perfect, cleanup patch.

What are the implications? People can more easily restore pictures, and photo manipulation becomes easier.

Few of us read our privacy policies all the way through because, well, they’re long and dense and often convoluted. Also, if each of us were to read all the privacy policies that apply to us each year, it’d take about 201 hours of our time a piece. Who has time for that?

That “201 hour” stat comes from this article, which also says there’s an AI that can help us know what’s in our privacy policies without that time sink. It’s a helpful tool because privacy policies do have important information in them, and we should know what that info is, so let’s let AI do the heavy lifting for us.

Computer screen with Photoshop showing

For those of us who have worked in Adobe Photoshop for work projects, school projects, fun projects, we realize the significance of Photoshop’s latest update, version 19.1. Adobe’s Sensei, its AI platform, is about to make our lives a whole lot easier. Gone are the days of manually cutting out subjects in pictures (huzzah!). While our former selves once internally groaned at the tedium and frustration of cutting out photo subjects, our future selves will rejoice in a nirvana-like state at what’s now possible: the one-click subject select. Hopefully it’s as good as it sounds.

For families trying to have children, there are many tools out there to help, and Mira’s artificial intelligence application has joined the fray. It’s test for LH is very accurate and more detailed than other ovulation test kits, and after learning a woman’s rhythm over time, it claims to be able to more accurately predict ovulation weeks ahead of time.

Another interesting aspect to this tech is it hopes to expand to testing for influenza and allergies. Who knows, maybe one day, you could have your very own health lab at your house.

While the ship date for this new AI application is delayed until April 2018 (or longer), Arsenal, a deep-learning photography assistant, will likely revolutionize advanced picture taking, at least for photography newbies. It simplifies the process of choosing control settings, like shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, on a professional camera. Funded on Kickstarter.com last June, it’s hit a snag in getting an Apple certificate, but it hopes to be ready to ship soon.

There have been a lot of recent disasters (hurricanes, floods, fires, earthquakes), and many people have lived through these shocking experiences—some by incredible means. But if disasters happen far from you, do you feel for the people they’ve happened to? This AI hopes to help you feel empathy for people going through rough times by changing pictures of your hometown and places you know into images that resemble the devastation of natural disaster, or even war.
