Google has released the source code of the algorithm that creates the stunning portraits on Pixel 2 we are aware of. Called “DeepLab-v3+”, the algorithm uses AI to draw an outline between the objects in the background as well as the foreground to create a depth effect without dual-camera sensors.
This step will allow other manufacturers to integrate the functionality in their Android smartphone without relying on gimmicky hardware. The step also hints that Google is working on something new for the Pixel 3 while doing its share of benevolence for dependent OEMs.
