Google demonstrated how good imaging capabilities can be achieved with a single camera setup when implemented with strong software algorithms. The Pixel 3 was no exception and the company has now updated the phone’s front camera with a new feature that is aimed at automatically clicking ‘perfect’ pictures using computer vision. In its AI Blog, Google AI engineers Navid Shiee and Aseem Agarwala detail the new shutter-free mode being added to Photobooth. This new mode intensively employs AI and computer vision to automatically capture images of a person in the frame for five different expressions. It clicks photos for the following expressions – smiles, tongue-out, kissy/duck face, puffy-cheeks, and surprise. As one might have figured out, the new mode is available only for capturing selfies.
