Facebook allows you to convert any of your photos from 2D to XNUMXD, using technical intelligence.
Facebook brings 2D photo posting to phones that do not capture in-depth data. Using the magic of artificial intelligence (AI), Facebook transforms your XNUMXD 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.
Facebook is obviously not the first to use AI to extract 3D data 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 complex, but according to Facebook, their intricate neural network can calculate the distance of each pixel from the camera using a variety of techniques.
