https://www.theverge.com/2017/7/14/15973712/google-ai-research-street-view-panorama-photo-editing Google's AI software was easily able to tackle making photographs out of crap, and able to compete with human photographers. This is just the first baby steps of what AI can do, and what Google will be able to do with the jillions of photos people are storing on their cloud. Companies who sell stock will soon find themselves competing with a Google automaton that can generate any "photo" in a nanosecond at well, no cost really. For example, my wife buys stock all the time for her work. She typically enters a long list of keywords to help narrow the search of course. It won't be long before those keywords will simply be fed into Google's "photo-maker" and in a nanosecond, a photo will appear for a fraction of the cost of stock. Who cares? Publishers won't care, fashion magazines won't care, only the lowly guy who used to making a living shooting pictures. It will be hailed as massive progress of course, a huge boon to the publishing industry. Of course, this will lead to a new, highly touted branch of "photography" wherein um, *cough* 'photographers' sit in front of a Google app typing in keywords as an artist would stroke his brush, creating new masterpieces - no clumsy cameras needed, thank you!
