First steps of artificial intelligence into Photography

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 alerts users to bad photos

The Note 9 offers some basic artificial intelligence, as the Chinese competition Huawei P20 Pro.
Whether it can enhance its capabilities by itself (learning by doing) is not known yet.

This is a first (very small) step, as the software will only detect basic technical issues like blurry pictures, blinking persons, and such. But I guess in only a view years the software will also analyse composition.

Let's hope not all listen to the software then, or all pictures will look alike.

I used to view this onset of A.I. in photography very negatively... but actually, I'm slowly warming to the idea. Not for myself, but for beginners - if they use it wisely.

We've had Auto and Scene modes on our cameras for a long time now, and there's a lot can be learned by examining the EXIF data to see what settings the camera chose for certain photos. If these A.I. notifications are used in a similar way, and they result in less-experienced photographers learning to be more careful about focus / motion capture, timing (to avoid blinkers etc.) and - eventually - compositional "no-no's", that might be a good thing.

Sadly, I suspect most people will just become increasingly reliant on the camera to do things for them. That's perfectly fine for some, but I hope others will use the technology to their learning advantage...

This technology has no appeal to me, but may be fine for who they are targeting.

Thinking of AI and photography, I find Topaz Lab's AI Clear is of much more interest:

With the limited processing and power budget of a phone not likely. However if the images are being shared and processed on some cloud computing platform then it very likely could.

Yesterday I saw an article about the Note 9 on a tech site and one of the things mentioned there was that the camera will "optimize contrast and saturation to make photos pop".

Photoshop CC use something similar to AI to auto remove selected object (content aware or something like that)
