This Friday, March 17, Google announced that it is developing a new auto focus tool for videos or Video Unblurwhich would be similar to the one already implemented in its Pixel 7 devices and which would initially be released in its next series.

Although this functionality was initially exclusive to the ‘smartphones’ it develops, it has been available to all users through its Google One subscription service for a few days.

In addition, the latest launched series of Pixel, Pixel 7, already offers a tool called Sharpen or Photo Unbluran automatic mode that applies focus to all images saved on the device, regardless of whether they were taken with that mobile or a different one.

This improvement of the images is possible because the device uses its Tensor G2 processor for this, which improves the functions based on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning and improves the sharpness of the photos.

The company is now working on bringing this tool to other multimedia content. Specifically, to the videos. This function would be present in their next mobilesas 9to5Google has learned.

This portal, which has found this option in the Google Photos tools section, has indicated that, once again, the device will make use of AI to keep the focus on the videos.

Google will take measures to ensure the proper use of its Artificial Intelligence services

This Thursday, March 16, Google has published a series of guidelines framed in a new ‘prohibited use policy’ focused on its generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) services such as Bard.

This is to ensure the proper use of these models and their functions, prohibiting activities such as “generate and distribute content intended to misinform.”

It is important to mention that in February of this year, the technology company presented its own chatbot based on the Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA) conversation technology. With it, the company intends to enhance the search experience to offer “current and high-quality” answers.

Google also announced that it is working on new generative language application programming interfaces (APIs), starting with LaMDA, which will be testable starting this month with a group of developers, builders, and businesses, with the goal of “create a set of tools and APIs that make it easier to develop more innovative applications with AI”.

In this way, the technology company has recalled that generative AI models are useful for “explore new topics, inspire creativity and learn new things”.

For all these reasons, Google has published a ‘prohibited use policy’ regarding the activities that users can carry out with its generative AI services.

The first point that this policy deals with is the prohibition of “performing or facilitating dangerous, illegal or malicious activities”. This includes actions that promote illegal activities, for example, creating content that exploits or abuses children; facilitate the sale of illegal substances, goods or services; or promote terrorist content.

It also refers to “abuse, damage, interfere or interrupt services”, with actions such as the distribution of ‘spam‘, scams or ‘malware‘. Following this thread, Google specifies that attempts to bypass security filters or “intentionally leading the model to act contrary to policy”.

Likewise, the company will not allow users to generate content that harms or promotes intentional harm to an individual or group of individuals. With this, it refers to methods of harassment, intimidation or abuse and even methods of self-harm.
