The Facebook allows you to convert any of your photos from 2D to XNUMXD, using technical intelligence.
The Facebook brings XNUMXD photo posting to phones that do not capture depth data. Using the magic of artificial intelligence (AI), the Facebook converts your 2D photos taken with a single lens camera into XNUMXD images.
The announcement was made on Friday on the Facebook AI blog, where the company's engineers announced the news as well as gave explanations on how this technique works.
The Facebook, obviously, is not the first AI to use to export data 3D from a 2D image. Google has been doing this with Pixel phones for years and LucidPix application does the same thing. The difference is that Facebook brings this technology to more users and is available for free. That means you do not have to buy one of the Google phones or pay for the Premium version of an application to get all the features.
The technical details of how it works are complicated, but according to Facebook their intricate neural network can calculate the distance of each pixel from the camera using various techniques.
