New technology tags your Facebook photos based on relationships
Washington – A researcher has come up with an ‘algorithm’ that tags photos based on the relationships that people in images have with each other.
The algorithm uses the name and location of existing photo tags to build a ‘relationship graph,’ where personal connections in the images are calculated, Mashable reports.
The new method makes it faster and more efficient at tagging pictures.
According to the report, University of Toronto engineering professorÂ Parham Aarabi has been working on the technology since 2005.
He emphasized the advantages of the algorithm over Facebook’s face-recognition photo tagging system, the report added.
