Developers from Google Research have created a deep convolutional neural network called NIMA, which successfully determines the highest-quality photos. The description of NIMA was published in the company's blog.
As N + 1 explains, when choosing the best frame, the neural network is guided by the technical component of the photographs and their overall aesthetics, estimated by the person. To train the neural network, the developers used an AVA database containing about 200,000 photographs, each of which was estimated by an average of 200 photographers on a scale of 1 to 10 points. During the training, the developers trained NIMA to guess the image rating based on its analysis with an accuracy of 80%.
In addition, the neural network has been trained on a series of images of the same object and has learned to choose the most successful of them, ranking the frames by rating.
As the creators of NIMA believe, the neural network can be widely used. For example, users can choose with it the best shot from a series of frames or select a filter that best fits a particular photo when processing.

The Chinese corporation Xiaomi has recently become frequent with the release of a variety of devices and products, most of which are created with its own site called Mijia, which creates batteries, electric scooters, toothbrushes, smart bulbs, sofas and many Other gadgets that are then on sale in China and are beginning to be very popular around the world, where they are sold by resellers or official representations of the company.
For all of its existence, Xiaomi has managed to release over 500 different products, among which were smartphones, tablets, laptops, battery batteries, backpacks and goods from other categories. Almost always every product of it becomes a real hit. When you buy a new device from Xiaomi, you can be absolutely sure that this is a quality product that is one of the best in its class.
Since the Chinese corporation is working on products from a wide range of categories, in the next few years it is simply obliged to release a new device that will change the world for the better. This is a laser printer under the brand Xiaomi, which can forever change the rules of the game in this market, where now blatantly dominate well-known manufacturers, like Samsung and HP. Yes, with the development of modern technologies, printing is becoming less relevant, but without printed documents today still can not do. The main problem of all laser printers is that their maintenance costs are simply unrealistically large amounts of money. Having bought a color laser printer for 20,000 rubles, of which there are a great many to choose from, the original toner cartridges for it will cost 2-3 times more than the printer itself. At the start of sales, it already has cartridges installed, but they tend to have less toner (ink for printing), so they run out quickly enough with active use. Sometimes it even goes so far that many organizations, when the laser printer runs out of toner, just buy a new printer, not new cartridges. This is due not only to the fact that for about the same money you can get new cartridges with red, but also completely new other components of the "laser", which in time also need to be changed. This drum, a stove and a number of other elements. For them you need to pay money, and in a new printer they are completely new to me. A laser printer from Xiaomi should forever disaccustom manufacturers of laser printers from earning money from the air, when the cost of a single cartridge is overestimated by 8-10 times from its real price. Like all other products under the branded Chinese brand, the company's laser printer will offer a stylish design, high performance and of course an incredibly low cost of printing.
At the end of last year Xiaomi released an electric scooter, which cost about 20 - 25 thousand rubles, while all its competitors are 3-4 times more. Ultimately, all the producers had to bring down the prices of their electric cars, and the product from the Chinese corporation became the most popular in the whole world. With her branded laser printer, the exact same situation should occur. I want to believe that the branded Xiaomi Mi Laser Printer will be released in 2018, and it will cost no more than $ 200-300.
