What’s impossible today will be possible in the future

I accidentally took this photo when strolling by a London canal:

It is, as you can tell, pretty horrible. Instinctively I would delete it, but before I did, a thought flashed through my head: machine learning will be able to fix this photo in the future. I don’t know when, but I’m sure it will. Besides, I’m not running out of storage.

I had the same thought about a broken SD card of mine: it might be unfixable today, but only today.

There is no conclusion to this post, it’s just a thought experiment that I’m now running.
