Google makes the technology used for portrait mode available


One of the most popular features of the new ones Google Pixel is definitely there camera, both from the hardware and software point of view.

Among the most successful functions we have the HDR + mode and portrait mode.

The latter is able to distinguish the subject from the background, which is rendered blurry. This is possible thanks to the semantic segmentation of the image. In practice, the software is able to categorize every single pixel, distinguishing people from the elements that make up the background.

This technology has recently been made open sourcetherefore available to all developers who want to implement it in their apps dedicated to photography.

The model made available is the DeepLab-v3 +developed on the basis of a convolutional neural network architecture to obtain the most accurate results possible.

In that of Mountain View they say they are particularly proud of the results achieved so far, unthinkable even 5 years ago. The hope is that sharing this technology with the world it will be easier for both academics and smartphone makers to achieve similar results e further improve this technology, perhaps finding new applications for it.
