VK (formerly Mail.ru Group) announced the launch of a new useful feature for its cloud service. The web version of Clouds Mail.ru now has a face filter.
The filter works for folders with access by link – it helps users to sort from a large number of photos only those where there is a certain person.
When you open a folder with access via a link, thumbnails with the faces of the people shown in the pictures will appear in the web version. Clicking on a person’s image will open a selection of their photos. If the user opens a file from a folder with access via a link, then the neural network will also recognize the face and find other pictures with it.
Project Manager Kirill Ignatkov said:
When working on the service, we strive to go from the needs of users. For example, many are faced with the problem of finding themselves in a photo from a corporate party or wedding – Cloud algorithms will do it in seconds. The update will also be useful for photographers, for example, they will be able to immediately select frames for clients.”
