Canon Raise: free photo community with AI

It’s new (and buggy) but it’s free. Yes you retain ownership but you understand that it will examined by software for autotagging, etc. I think the point of Raise is for sorting out your imagery by tags, which are analyzed out of your images by their AI engine. You can manually add tags and such, and can apply global tags to upload sets.

I made an account to try it (the iPhone app) out. Looks interesting. I tried browsing to my page on the web but instead of photos I’m getting an red error triangle.

A few interesting caveats.

  • Use of the Platform is intended only for individuals who are 18 years of age or older and located and residing in the 50 United States or the District of Columbia.

  • Images of residents of Illinois, Texas or Washington are not permitted on the Platform. (they have laws against images of their people in AI databases)

Those are some interesting rules… Doesn’t google photos ready do this?
