Specifically, it’s using Google AI tools to recognize printed or handwritten text describing the photos and Google’s storage and data analysis services, the newspaper said. It plans to investigate whether object recognition is worthwhile, too.

This is a big reason why I consider mitchwagner.com my home on the web even though far more people interact with me on social media. Social media is fickle.
