Content-aware image processing is an innovative computational photography technique accelerated by AI. An advanced NPU technology enables a complicated semantic segmentation with low power and latency, automatically detecting segmented objects and sending the segmented information to hardware ISP. With this solution, the optimal image quality for separate regions can be achieved in terms of texture (sharpen and noise signal) and color qualities. Types of object supported by the solution include trees, grass, sky, face and its features such as eye brows, eyes, mouth and others.
Samsung’s newly launched Exynos 1380 contains both the advanced NPU technology and improved hardware ISP than the predecessor to run real-time semantic segmentation even in video recording. Visitors at Samsung booth were able to experience the solution firsthand with the demonstration of different devices with content-aware image processing off/on mode. Visitors could also take selfies with Semantic Segmentation Map mode, to directly examine how the content-aware image signal processor recognizes an image part by part.
