EyeQ is excited to announce we have made another big leap in innovation with the introduction of AI Scene Detection which uses artificial intelligence. By processing over 50.5 billion photos per year, we’ve been able to identify common themes and build an AI platform to leverage all this amassed intelligence. So while Perfectly Clear has always been an intelligent product, our new AI Scene Detection feature takes correction accuracy and the ability to assess different scenes to a next level.
By the way, this won’t be our only AI innovation! Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks for even more…
EyeQ’s engineering team took the time and care to choose 12 scenes and lighting conditions that showed improvement with a different preset than the existing iAuto 2021 feature. Other scenes not included were proven to look best with the current iAuto 2021 parameters. There is also an option for EyeQ to build in custom scenes for a customer’s specific business and needs if that is required.
AI Scene Detection is quick and requires no exotic hardware. The processing time is < 1/10th second and it runs on CPU.
During initial testing, we calculated an accuracy rate of 96%. Presets are applied on a tiered system (see image above) to ensure the least harmful preset will be chosen in an event where the scene could be classified as more than one category.
AI Scene Detection will choose whatever correction we have trained it to know is more important. We have created a default tiered system that can also be changed based on your business needs. For example, it is probably more important for a photo of a baby at sunset to receive soft correction on the baby than it is for the photo to receive a vibrant sunset correction. Therefore, the baby correction would kick in rather than the sunset correction. This ensures the most accurate correction.
If we don’t have a scene listed that is important to your business, we can add it for you. We’ll work with you to create an accurate preset and gather about 1,000 photos to train our AI Scene Detection engine. If we have everything we need, it will only take about two weeks to train the engine!
Scene Detection is currently available for testing through Workbench. For SDK customers, an update will be very easy and will most likely be a drop in for many implementations. Please contact your personal sales associate or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. QuickDesk and QuickServer customers will be able to update through AppsManager.
Currently, you can test AI Scene Detection through Workbench. If you have Workbench installed, just update it through AppsManager and get testing! We plan to roll this new technology out to customers as soon as possible, and we will contact customers directly when the update is officially available.
AI Scene Detection presets are only implemented when Perfectly Clear believes the result will be better than the iAuto preset. See for yourself!
AI Scene Detection will skip over any images that aren't meant to be edited such as illustrations, vectors, and clipart.
