That's it then. Time to give up. It was good while it lasted. 

 

But can it also post intelligent questions and answers in stock photography forums?

Camera still needs a slave to get into good spots. Slave available. ;-)

All photos that can be shot, have already been shot in the last 150 - or so - years. 

Why do we need photographers, let alone a specific device, to do what has already been done. 

</sarcasm>

 

I wonder how they implemented creativity into that device.

Computers rely on memory of past events. Computers cannot deliver image surprise. Surprise the viewer with your image. Think outside the box. As hdh says “creativity”.


Chess playing computers beat Grand Masters. But Grand Masters combined with a computer partner, beat a computer opponent alone.


Grand Master Kasparov. “Having a computer partner also meant never having to worry about making a tactical blunder. The computer could project the consequences of each move we considered, pointing out possible outcomes and countermoves we might otherwise have missed. With that taken care of for us, we could concentrate on strategic planning instead of spending so much time on calculations. Human creativity was even more paramount under these conditions.”


Computers, chess, and images described here. Explains viral images like the monkey selfie.
