Beverly Hills cops try to weaponize Instagram’s algorithms in failed attempt to thwart live streamers

We don’t know if Beverly Hills Police Department (BHPD) Sergeant Billy Fair practices Santeria (or owns a crystal ball), but we know he listens to the Sublime song of the same name. We know this because he’s become a viral sensation on Instagram after blasting the 1990’s hit at a citizen in a misguided attempt to get Instagram’s algorithm to take down a live stream due to copyright infringement. Ironically, the officer of the law isn’t very clear on the social media site’s rules. But we’ll get t...

Finesse raises $4.5M to predict fashion trends with AI

Finesse, a startup promising to take the guesswork and waste out of fashion, is announcing that it has raised $4.5 million in seed and pre-seed funding. Founder and CEO Ramin Ahmari said the tremendous waste in the fashion industry has become a badly-kept secret, with Burberry recently facing a backlash over its practice of burning unwanted products, and the industry as a whole producing an estimated 13 million tons of textile waste each year. Finesse is looking to change that, Ahmari said, in p...

Facebook and Instagram’s AI-generated image captions now offer far more details

Every picture posted to Facebook and Instagram gets a caption generated by an image analysis AI, and that AI just got a lot smarter. The improved system should be a treat for visually impaired users, and may help you find your photos faster in the future. Alt text is a field in an image’s metadata that describes its contents: “A person standing in a field with a horse,” or “a dog on a boat.” This lets the image be understood by people who can’t see it. These descriptions are often added manually...

Adobe brings over 10,000 design assets to Spark

Adobe is launching an update to its Spark social media design tool today that will bring more than 10,000 new design assets to the service. This update, which follows the launch of animations in Spark in September, also brings a small UI change with it to accommodate this new feature, but for the most part, you can think of design assets as an extension to what a lot of users were already doing with icons in Spark.

Facebook services saw most disruptions in India in first half of 2020

In the first half of 2020, there were 42 instances when Facebook services were disrupted in India, totalling for a total of 38 weeks, 3 days, and 19 hours. Most of these disruptions were in Jammu and Kashmir, followed by West Bengal. This information was revealed as part of Facebook’s transparency report for the first half of 2020. This isn’t a surprising trend, given how trigger happy the Indian government has been with issuing internet shutdown orders — Jammu and Kashmir for instance was subje...

Digital imaging pioneer Russell Kirsch dies at 91

Russell Kirsch, whose research going back to the ’50s underlies the entire field of digital imaging, died earlier this week at the age of 91. It’s hard to overstate the impact of his work, which led to the first digitally scanned photo and the creation of what we now think of as pixels. Born to Russian and Hungarian immigrant parents in 1929, Kirsch attended NYU, Harvard and MIT, eventually landing a job at the National Bureau of Standards (later the National Institutes of Science and Technology...

Study: Instagram’s algorithm favored Trump over Biden

Conservatives have long accused social media platforms of being politically biased. A new report suggests they might be right — but not in the way they claim. The Tech Transparency Report (TTP) found that Instagram pushed searches about Joe Biden towards negative hashtags about the former vice president, but blocked them for President Trump. The action was apparently triggered by Instagram‘s related hashtags, which direct users to content related to their previous hashtag searches. TTP compared ...

Wake up sheeple: AI shows all tourists basically take the same picture

Images shared online have a big impact on how we travel. As documentary photographer Sara Melotti puts it: We are all going to the same places, trying to get similar versions of that same shot because we know it will get us more likes….we go to Instagram-spots! What a sad sad word that is, isn’t it?! Sad as it may be, those photos can reveal a lot about our travel choices, as Facebook‘s AI team recently discovered. The researchers analyzed the influence that online photos and conservation polici...

R&D Roundup: Tech giants unveil breakthroughs at computer vision summit

Computer vision summit CVPR has just (virtually) taken place, and like other CV-focused conferences, there are quite a few interesting papers. More than I could possibly write up individually, in fact, so I’ve collected the most promising ones from major companies here. Facebook, Google, Amazon and Microsoft all shared papers at the conference — and others too, I’m sure — but I’m sticking to the big hitters for this column. (If you’re interested in the papers deemed most meritorious ...

Instagram’s algorithm prioritizes ‘scantily-clad’ photos, study finds

If your Instagram newsfeed is filled with thirst traps, it might not be solely because you’re a total pervert. According to a new study, the gram’s algorithm makes photos showing skin more likely to appear. Researchers from AlgorithmWatch and the European Data Journalism Network made the discovery by analyzing Instagram newsfeeds, talking to content creators, and studying patents.

Sony shows off first combination image sensor and AI chip

Sony has developed an interesting new hybrid technology: An image sensor with AI processing system built into the hardware, making it a single integrated system. The benefits and applications for this are potentially enormous as imagery and code continue to merge. The idea is fairly simple in concept. You take a traditional CMOS image sensor like you’d find in any phone or camera today, and stack it on top of a logic chip that’s built not just for pulling pixels off the sensor but for operati...

Restoring the Soul of Business

DATA without soul is harmful. Science, math, and data do not excuse us from thinking. Instead, they make it imperative that we learn to think more critically and combine it with our humanness to come to more measured conclusions.

Flush with data, we risk losing something more valuable: what’s human. Rishad writes in Restoring...

Facebook brings its 3D photos feature to users with single-camera phones

Facebook first showed off its 3D photos back in 2018, and shared the technical details behind it a month later. But unless you had one of a handful of phones with dual cameras back then (when they weren’t so common), you couldn’t make your own. Today an update brings 3D photos to those of us still rocking a single camera. In case you don’t remember or haven’t seen one lately, the 3D photos work by analyzing a 2D picture and slicing it into a ton of layers that move separately when you tilt the p...

Google AI will stop assuming your gender and won’t tag you as “man” or “woman” in photos
