However, the good news is that there is now an app that you can use to delete people from photos. Dubbed Bye Bye Camera, this is an app that can remove humans from photos that you take. Created by Do Something Good, this app will use some AI tools that are already available online, such as YOLO which can classify objects and will also be able to outline a person in the photo.
According to Do Something Good’s Damjanski who spoke to Artnome, “The app takes out the vanity of any selfie and also the person. I consider Bye Bye Camera an app for the post-human era. It’s a gentle nod to a future where complex programs replace human labor and some would argue the human race. It’s interesting to ask what is a human from an Ai (yes, the small “i” is intended) perspective? In this case, a collection of pixels that identify a person based on previously labeled data. But who labels this data that defines a person immaterially? So many questions for such an innocent little camera app.”
For those who are interested, Bye Bye Camera is only available on iOS devices where it is priced at $3.
