10up has announced some updates to its ClassifAI plugin, which augments WordPress sites with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technology. 🧠🤖
The new release adds automated text scanning of uploaded images, including screenshots, using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. By storing scanned text in WordPress, content editors can search the contents of screenshots and other images to add that plain text into the main content of a post.
According to Jeff Paul at 10up, this technology might come in handy if you were affected by Facebook and Instagram dropping support for open embeds.
