Again Canto has delivered some cool and exciting new and improved features with the latest Flight update – Flight CDG.

Smart tags

Currently only available in US and Europe (this may update soon). This exciting feature is based on AWS Rekognition – Flight can now automatically attach tags to an image after detecting objects and other details in an image.

After Smart tags are activated the admin can set a number of smart tags to be displayed, and set the accuracy of smart tags.
