Russian startup Prisma made a breakthrough in mobile technology
Founded by the Russian popular photo editor Prisma made a breakthrough in the field of mobile technology.
Over the past 2 of the month, a team of 9 developers made it possible for the application to work offline without communicating with the company's servers, writes CNN.
The update became available on 23 August, and this is a big breakthrough for the company, since previously each photo processing required communication with Prisma servers. This improvement will make the application more convenient for users who may not always have the necessary level of access to the Internet.
Prisma works like Instagram, but without a social media component. Upload or take a photo, and the free app will turn it into a work of art in the style of famous masterpieces. You can take a selfie in the style of Edvard Munch's "Scream" or any other piece. Half of the styles will now work offline with no internet connection, Prisma promises to expand the list of offline styles.
Prisma uses “deep learning” technology, which is very energy-intensive and requires photo processing with a powerful processor. Therefore, earlier, users had to connect to the company's servers, since smartphones do not have a processor of sufficient power. But programmers decided to simplify the process of photo processing, without losing quality, and now some styles have become available on smartphones. This will allow to unload the company's servers and increase the number of users who can use the application at the same time.
The release of servers means that the company will have a reserve of power in order to produce new products for photo processing, as well as be able to do video, as its founders promise.
Prisma technology is not just applying filters, the program studies the pixelation of the photo, recognizes the image, determines the shape of the face or other objects in order to process them as realistically as possible.
This update Prisma launched just at a time when large technology companies are investing heavily in image recognition and technology improvement of this process, so the Russian startup showed everyone how to work in the areas of mobile technology and photo processing.
Since launching 2016 in June, Prisma has been downloaded over 52 a million times and has 4 a million daily active users. In almost a month of 3, more than 1,2 billion photos were processed in it.
The founder and CEO of the project is the Russian programmer Alexey Moiseenkov.
