Google’s secondary Alphabet’s Incorporation’s (GOOGL) artificial intelligence (AI) is taking a shot at lessening data consumption with the assistance of image compression technology known as RAISR (Rapid and Accurate Super Image Resolution). The rationale is to spare your significant information and load great quality pictures by utilizing less data. Unfortunately, the strategy is constrained to Google+ for the time being.
Because of RAISR technology, you will have the capacity to save about 75% of mobile data without compromising on substance quality. RAISR accumulates and analyzes pictures and after that makes a copy of those pictures by utilizing a small amount of the pixels from the principle picture. All the while, the quality of the photo is not bargained.
The recently developed machine learning technology – RAISR was initially exhibited by Google in November and is presently being used by Google+ images on Android gadgets. RAISR’s algorithms empower Google+ to get HD pictures with low document size and high resolution.
RAISR innovation beyond any doubt looks alluring as we would all love to get superb pictures on lesser data usage. But not many people use Google+. We anticipate that Google will bring RAISR innovation for different applications soon. Google is not by any means the only one who is searching for strategies to reduce data consumption, Twitter is also chipping away at it. Last June, Twitter assumed control over an AI startup – ‘Magic Pony’ that gives a comparable algorithm and it additionally applies a similar tech for videos.
Google elucidated on RAISR technology by saying:
“Doing so reduces the data cost of each image by up to 75 percent. The technique is currently being applied to more than a billion images a week, and the company says doing so has reduced users’ total bandwidth by about a third.”
With RAISR, Google states to be upscaling over a billion pictures each week. Google has indicated that it will reveal the innovation all the more extensively in a few weeks. It is not certain if Google will apply it in Chrome browser as well, as that would be very useful for the users who highly depend on mobile data. We trust that Google will bring it to other applications in the time to come like Google Photos.
