Paragraphica: A Camera without lens
The viral video features a man taking a picture with the new camera, Paragraphica. He is seen operating the camera and taking a snap of the place he is in.
CHENNAI: Artificial Intelligence (AI) has started entering every professional sector. It is now making an entry into photography. Bjørn Karmann, an Amsterdam-based senior experience and interaction designer, took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to introduce Paragraphica, a context-to-image camera, that uses location data and AI to visualise a "photo" of a specific place and moment.
The viral video features a man taking a picture with the new camera, Paragraphica. He is seen operating the camera and taking a snap of the place he is in. The resulting photographs are not just a snapshot but also provide information about the location, the current weather, and nearby places. Bjørn Karmann also uploaded photographs clicked with Paragraphica at different locations.
