Anyone else interested?

Guys,

I have some fairly advanced solutions for both tagging and facial. Would anyone be interested in trying them? I will be able to demo them from March 14th on-wards.

Also, if anyone has further thoughts on their utility in photography use cases discussed, please let me know.

Thanks.

No other thoughts on computer vision applied to photography?

Im assuming these are the two articles:

https://aepoc.wordpress.com/2012/10/19/scott-kelbys-the-challenge-of-shooting-hockey/


I'm not sure they depict use cases any better, though I do see the challenges. Anyone else have any thoughts on these tools?

Let me know if you find Scott Kelbys article. I would be interested.



I'm thinking more about large scale graduation events like this one. There are a bunch of unlabeled photos. Make sense?

If it is a commercial photo (i.e NHL) where every second is of the essence, yes facial recognition/tagging would make sense. 

So NHL photographers is good use case?

Unless you have personal info for the people you are tagging it is pretty pointless.  If you are proofing online, they would appear in order and presumably they collect their diplomas alphabetically so that wouldn't be an issue.  The moms have Rebels, the kids have Iphones and the parties have instant photo booths.  The only thing I really do anymore is an actual portrait sessions and sometimes a school will ask me to come take a class photo on the steps of Parliament or at their banquet hall for example.  Sometimes I have a portrait client AND I'm at the ceremony I will shoot my clients - the parents always buy these shots.  But a whole class on spec?  Not sure it's not worth the effort any more. 

I mean, have you seen a SmugMug listing of a university graduation? Thousands of photos all unorganized. See what I mean?


Sports - again, are you wondering about spec shooting games?  I can't see face recognition being very accurate with helmets and cages and visors.  I don't see it as necessary either unless you need to wire a newspaper.  The only guarantee of sales in action photography is to be commissioned by red #9 and shoot a game for him.  Ask him to split the fee with a couple friends and you have a good nights work.  I've gone in to shoot one kid and they are injured in the first 45 seconds. 

Ok, for 80% or more of these photos here: http://www.gettyimages.com/photos/new-york-yankees?sort=mostpopular&excludenudity=true&mediatype=photography&phrase=new%20york%20yankees&family=editorial, you either have a jersey # or decent face. So the idea would be to automatically tag them specific to game. Make sense? How do photographers usually sort their shots when they have a few hundred? Do they manually sort them and then sent them to Getty?

No, I would never use facial recognition.  If I was shooting the Olympics on the other hand.....

So Olympic photographers is good use case? The idea is in general to create a sports database that is oriented to the specific event (NHL event/Olympic event, etc.) So the accuracy would be much higher. Make sense?

That's really interesting @Douglas. I think some of the keywords you list maybe possible at high accuracy.

Photographers, any thoughts on graduation photos idea or sport photography photos idea?

Does anyone want to see any demos? Please let me know. Any any other feedback? Honestly, I'm excited about building next generation tools for photographers. I just need some feedback on whether you would use them or not.

I think it can be pretty good Jo Ann. Not that good, but still pretty good and useful. What about the sports or graduation idea? If they were good, would you use such products?

Newbie Discussion / Photographic Tools Feedback
« on: September 06, 2015, 20:36 »
Guys,

I had three ideas I wanted to run by you guys for feedback on as photographers. Im thinking about building some cool machine learning products. Here are the ideas. Please let me know if these would be something you maybe interested in. Any feedback would be amazing. I think some of these tools could be pretty cool. Any feedback from photographers out there?


1. Graduation Photo Organizing Tool

Idea is if a graduation photographer has a bunch of photos, they may take a lot of time to sort them (by name). Here are some relevant links below. Use facial recognition to auto-tag them by the event.

2. Sports Photography Tool

Idea is if a sports photographer has a bunch of photos, organize them by player name. Relevant Links below:

3. Auto-tagging. Automatically generate high-quality tags. I know this has been discussed a lot recently, but wanted to throw it out there still. Link below

Would you also want a social network on it?

It would take sometime to get to the sales of SS.

Anyone tired of having to sell stock on one site, building a portfolio on another, and socializing on another network? Shouldn't there just be one integrated platform, that does all of these things? Why doesn't Flickr do stock or iStock make a social network?
