Everpix Adds New Features to Photo Organization App

David Weir of 7× reports, “Everpix has been building a semantic sorting platform for the past 18 months which takes advantage of the metadata attached to digital photos and automatically sorts them into a visual timeline of your life… The first layer of organization is by time, since that is part of the metadata embedded in each photo, and very often location as well. Everpix analyzes the photos for other elements and groups those that are collections – such as shots from a concert or a trip. ‘We add a semantic layer to your photos that helps classify them by the various elements our technology recognizes,’ says Latour. ‘We can recognize if is a close-up, whether it’s outside or inside, a dinner, flowers, at a beach, etc. We have about 50 categories a photo can be automatically classified as in’.” Read more

Everpix Uses Semantic Understanding to Organize Your Photos

David Worthington of the IBM Smart Planet blog recently wrote, “Everpix, a San Francisco start-up founded just over a year ago, has introduced a new service that uses semantic understanding to highlight and rediscover photos that may be of interest.

Its solution is a new ‘highlights’ view that scans photos to obtain a sense of its scene or composition, and then it pairs those photos together into collections. It attempts to determine image quality, so that out of focus shots are not displayed, and the best shot is chosen to represent the collection. You can drill down to see the rest.” Read more
