Automating resource selection with Client Hints: bit.ly/1JA97Oi

In Chrome 46 the <img> and <picture> elements just got a lot smarter: enable client hints and the browser will advertise the DPR, width, and viewport-width to the server, which in turn can automate delivery of responsive images! Even better, mix-in ServiceWorker to further refine and control which assets are fetched and displayed -- see the post for full details.

Artificial Neural Networks have spurred remarkable recent progress in image classification and speech recognition. But even though these are very useful tools based on well-known mathematical methods, we actually understand surprisingly little of why certain models work and others don’t.

Over on the Google Research blog, we take a look at some simple techniques for peeking inside these networks, yielding a qualitative sense of the level of abstraction that particular layers of neural networks have achieved in their understanding of images. This helps us visualize how neural networks are able to carry out difficult classification tasks, improve network architecture, and check what the network has learned during training. 

It also makes us wonder whether neural networks could become a tool for artists—a new way to remix visual concepts—or perhaps even shed a little light on the roots of the creative process in general.

Google Unveils New Photos App, Available Today on iOS, Android and Web

Today, Google announced a new Photos app that is able to store, organize, backup, and share your images.

One of the biggest features of the new app is that Photos will automatically analyze and sort your images. Users now have the ability to search through their photos. For example, you can search for “snow storm in Toronto” and the app will list all photos that were taken during a snow storm while you were in Toronto.

Google is bringing their Machine Learning expertise from Google Now and Google Search to the Photos app. The algorithms developed by the Photos team allows users to find photos based on keywords.
