Google’s New AI Can Tell Where Your Photo Was Taken Without Using Geotags

Today, MIT Tech Review reports on a new effort led by Tobias Weyand, a computer vision specialist at Google, to create a computer that sees a photo and can instantly figure out where in the world it’s from. The system was fed over 90 million geotagged images across the planet, and trained to spot patterns based on location.

Design for AI: Thinking Beyond MVC

MVC, in its current format, can’t handle new technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. These new environments will require new and far more complex architectures (MVC shortcomings are already apparent). For design this is likely to be as much of a defining experience as the shift from print to digital. It is fascinating to think about the fact that we’re reaching a point where we will be designing systems, quite literally, instead of views.

On the Democratisation & Escalation of Creativity — Chapter 01

The goal of this project is to find a set of guiding principles, metaphors and ideas that inform the development of a CreativeAI praxis, new theories, experiments, and applications. To explore this space, we investigate history and technology, construct a narrative and develop a vision for a future where CreativeAI helps us raise the human potential.
