This could be used for writers or Dungeon Masters. Instead of imagining places and trying to describe them, they could use this camera to take a "photo" of their room/basement and use this description.
who does the description and how specific is it? Is it some geeky guy in a basement somewhere? He's like, she looks kinda hot, her boobs could be bigger and her nose is like weird and she is obviously NOT a blonde....(end description)
I dont see the point of this. It sounded cool untill they mentioned Human Intelligence Task people. This is no magic/technology if there is a dude on the other end getting paid a dollar to describe a photo. I thought the camera itself was intelligent enough to interpret the picture it just took..
this has already been done using current and older gen cameras, using a modded firmware you can view the RGB values of each pixel, thus a description that completely describes the image
then using some scripting, you can take the text output of the rgb values, then create an image from it which can be printed and you will have a very accurate visual of what is in the pixel, with perfect pixel mapping (and best of all, no crowd sourcing needed since if the RGB values of each pixel is not enough, then an interpreter can map those values to actual pixels.
