If not, can something like this be developed using cloud based technology?

    Hello Corn,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    This is a great project but it definitely requires enormous resources and advance AI algorithms. Facebook and Google both were running long-term in-depth researches related to image recognition and even though - Facebook admits in this article that this technology is still in its early stage. Yet, this would be a great tool.

    I think however that even if developing a tool as advanced as the one that Facebook is creating right now could be really difficult task, it could be possible to create much simplified version. There's a cloud SaaS service called Imagga that provides tools to automatically categorize and tag photos. Using their combined "Categorization" and "Auto-Tagging" APIs it could be possible to write a nice WordPress plugin that would add relevant tags to images as content of "alt" attribute.

    For example, if a plugin (or rather Imagga API) would detect that the strawberry is the main element of the photo, it would create an "alt" content such as for example: "Photo of strawberry, berry, fruit" which will result in HTML similar to this:

    <img src="image.jpg" alt="Photo of strawberry, berry, fruit">

    While not as sophisticated as Facebook's solution, I think it could be quite useful.

    I hope that helps!
    Best regards,
