Google Updates ‘Google Photos’ to Allow Users Train its AI
Just like we learn from our experiences, Machine Learning (ML) too, learns from experiences. A bunch of data is provided to the computer that uses computational methods to learn information directly from it. As the samples for learning increases, the algorithms’ performance increases.
In the same way, Google wants users to train its Artificial Intelligence (AI) by labeling images in the new updated Google Photos app. The app comes with a new option that lets Google know about the contents of the images. As users will start labeling images, Google will improve its object recognition algorithm. As Google has a lot of users and a lot of data, Photos will turn out to be a more useful app.

The feature is available for the most recent version of Google Photos i.e. Google Photos 5.18. Users can find it in the app’s menu after scrolling down to select the option “Help improve Google Photos.”
As reported by 9to5Google; After that initial session, you can improve the following aspects of Google Photos:
- Understanding your photos: We’d like to learn what’s important to you.
- Printing preferences: Help us understand what you’d like to print
- Made for you: Help us create better collages, animations, and more
- Holiday photos: Help us learn which photos show a certain holiday or event.
Google’s help page describes the feature as: “It may take time to see the impact your contributions have on your account, but your input will help improve existing features and build new ones; for example, improved suggestions on which photos to print or higher quality creations that you would like. You can delete your answers at any time.”

The underlying process is powered by “Crowdsource by Google,” a crowdsourcing platform launched back in 2016. It lets users earn points and badges by completing tasks such as verifying landmarks, transcribing handwritten notes, and other similar jobs.
The current 5.18 version is rolling out after on-and-off testing over the past year.
