Twitter is now using AI to crop your photos

When you are going to upload a photo on Twitter, the thumbnail preview does not always show the entire image and most of the time, the format in which the wrong photo is cropped, forcing you to plug the image of the tweet, to see it in its entirety. To this end, the social network has decided to use artificial intelligence, to improve the cutouts and frame the format of the photos well.

Twitter uses artificial intelligence to improve cropping in photo thumbnails

Previously, Twitter made use of face detection, so that it could determine what should appear in the thumbnail preview, but since not all photos contain faces, the algorithm clearly made the mistake of cropping the images incorrectly . With artificial intelligence, the team is now focusing on to make the deep learning system understand, what can be those elements of the photo that users could watch.

The sections that artificial intelligence must be able to recognize, beyond the faces, the text, possible animals and parts of the high contrast image. Going into slightly more scientific terms, a technique called “distillation of consciousness", To train the software a generate forecasts on a set of images.

In summary then, the way Twitter crops photo thumbnails should now be drastically improved, the technology also allows you to crop on average up to <strong>ten times faster</strong> compared to previous algorithms.</p><p>The update that implements AI is about to be <strong>distributed to all Android users</strong>, who will soon appreciate the new improvement.</p><p>Thanks for subscribing!
