Xiaomi is on the way to revolutionizing mobile photography with their DeepExposure AI. While other manufacturers are on a race to put more lenses on their phones, Xiaomi is working smarter by actually finding solutions to limitations of smartphone photography.
With their recent breakthrough, the company is working on an AI that aims to restore detail into photos by isolating image segments and tweaking their corresponding exposure values separately. The DeepExposure AI is still in development but has already presented promising results in tests. Once refined, the application of this technology can greatly speed up the process of image processing and help smartphones produce professional-looking images with even better detail.
Xiaomi is also testing different filters alongside the AI. They are currently teaching the AI using images from the MIT-Adobe FiveK dataset, containing over 3,000 raw images. There’s no word yet on the project’s timetable, but it’s fair to assume that once completed, we might see this technology incorporated on future Xiaomi phones.
