CNET: Google AI helps NYT get a handle on 5 million photo archive

CNET: Google AI helps NYT get a handle on 5 million photo archive. “Google’s computer brains are helping The New York Times turn a historic archive of more than 5 million photos into digital data that’ll appear in the newspaper’s features about history. The newspaper’s ‘morgue’ has 5 million to 7 million photos dating back to the 1870s, including prints and contact sheets showing all the shots on photographers’ rolls of film. The Times is using Google’s technology to convert it into something more useful than its current analog state occupying banks of filing cabinets.”
