Precious cams app
The Lau brothers want to make accounts sharable so photos from moms, dads, grandparents and caretakers can be gathered and organized, and add a printing feature that lets users create and order physical photo albums from the app.Precious, which is currently self-funded aside from the financing it received as part of Y Combinator’s program, will also introduce a free version with premium services, but the startup will continue to rely on its subscription model instead of showing targeted ads or selling data to third parties.“Daniel saw me staring at my baby photos all the time and we felt we could make something really awesome for parents with AI,” Chris, Precious’ chief executive officer, told Tech Crunch in an interview.The brothers started making trips to Babies R Us to chat with other moms and dads about what they needed. Also i like reading, cooking, dancing, taking photos of nature.
Once it decides which photos to use, the app automatically creates photo collages and albums each day.
That didn’t happen and now I have thousands of baby photos on my phone and no idea how to even begin organizing them.
Created for parents who, like me, are overwhelmed by their digital memories, Precious uses artificial intelligence to help them wrangle and enjoy photos of their kids, automatically creating collages, slideshows, animations and time-lapse videos.
I’m not a very sentimental person, but watching my daughter morph from a newborn blob into an impish, expressive toddler felt magical and made me a bit teary. “Many moms and dads aren’t really techies per say, so saying it is AI-based doesn’t mean they are really going to respond to that. “So we show them things that they will get like the time lapse and tell them that it’s easy.
That’s the differentiator for them.” Other plans include taking advantage of artificial neural networks in newer smartphone software and moving more of Precious’ scanning technology onto phones, instead of sending photos to the cloud for processing, so the app will work faster and use less battery power.But all this joy you can get out of these photos and videos is why we take them.” There are already a ton of baby photo apps out there, each with their own angle.
