YouTube trials feature that replaces video backgrounds
Mar 06, 2018, 02:07
Google has introduced real-time, on-device mobile video segmentation to the YouTube app, by integrating this technology into the latter's stories feature, a new lightweight video format, designed specifically for YouTube creators on its beta version. Now in limited beta, stories is YouTube's new lightweight video format, designed specifically for YouTube creators. The technology has been integrated into stories, which is a lightweight video format now in limited beta for YouTube creators, though there are plans to integrate into more of Google's augmented reality services in the future. "Our new segmentation technology allows creators to replace and modify the background, effortlessly increasing videos' production value without specialized equipment", read the blog post. Still, the feature seems pretty neat, and Google is obviously not done perfecting it. According to Google, the AI is about 98 percent accurate under ideal conditions, but that number drops to 94.8 percent when running on an iPhone 7 or Pixel 2.
Google has also trained Artificial Intelligence to pick up the difference between facial features such as the eyes, hair, glasses, and mouth from everything else in the background and foreground as well. Unlike many online publications, we don't have a paywall or run banner advertising, because we want to keep our journalism open, without influence or the need to chase traffic.
Google silently made the ability to download YouTube videos for offline view available in more countries than we had expected.
Severe Weather Possible Tonight
The primary concern will be heavy rain and flooding, with an occasional strong wind gust or two with some of these storms. Minor flooding is possible along smaller creeks and streams due to the recent snow melt and very saturated ground.
Still, it's an interesting option for YouTubers who may not always want to deal with setting up a green screen.
That's not to say green screen will go out of fashion anytime soon, though. As a result, the AI's background replacement quality not quite on par with a green screen, but Google's technique does not require editing skills or extra work. The tool is already in testing for YouTube, and it's as easy to use as applying filters to a still photo.
Will a similar feature be available on Instagram at some point?
