Automating keywording and tagging process using machine learning

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Automatic image tagging

Keywording is a painful and cumbersome process especially in these days where many photographers have fat LR catalogs with hundred thousands of photos that are increasing every day with little or no time to pick, rate, keyword, and tag.

LR has automated face detection and geotagging features, and both are integrated nicely with keywording panel at the library module. However, many users may need to search for a specific photo based on some general concepts such as scene type (e.g. landscape, architecture), or more specific objects such as Eiffel tower.

At the moment, I'm aware of the experimental search feature which is available only at online version of LR but this is limited only for searching on synced collections without offering any option to keyword them.

I think it will be great if Adobe extends the artificial intelligence based search feature to desktop and mobile versions of LR  and adds the ability to suggest keywords and apply them into photos.

Good Idea, will save a lot of time and money if it can work.

This is already available for photos published in the Adobe Stock publishing service (but the keywords don't come back into your local catalog), so I'm convinced Adobe is working on it. In the meantime, there are some plugins that do this. The one I use is 'MyKeyworder'.

yes, I would love this.

But, how much slower would it make things? I want to be able to turn it off if it bogs down the other things I need more.
