While artificial intelligence may one day evolve into the godhead, right now it's being put to a more prosaic use: amusing backgrounds in YouTube videos. Sorry. For now, it's available to only a pretty small number of high-profile YouTubers with access to the YouTube stories service, which offers an ability to share Snapchat-esque short videos. To get just a little more limited, the feature is just for "stories" using the video service's new video format.
Google researchers and software engineers Valentin Bazarevsky and Andrei Tkachenka, have been developing a more practical way to change backgrounds without the need of any harsh Photoshop or photo booth efforts for video creators and with no need of green screen at all since all will be completely suitable through an app on the user's phone. So, it shouldn't be a surprise the rollout of the new feature for mobile video.
According to a report on Techcrunch changing the background of a video or image requires a device to recognise the foreground and background of the image or video. After identifying all of that, it separates that data from the background layer. More importantly, this technology is being tested to run on smartphones; removing the need for expensive computer setups. Thereafter, the team worked to improve the quality by adding layers to smooth the edges between the foreground and background. The offline YouTube feature is now available in 135 countries. So while Google looks to have big plans for their mobile real-time video segmentation, maybe don't toss out your green screen just yet.
YouTube creators may be the first to play with Google's new background replacement feature, but the company's AI opens up new possibilities for plenty of other augmented reality apps.
