If we are ever going to have something like this, the IMHO best approach
would be to have some kind of API where you give a picture (and maybe
some meta-data) as input and get back some suggested tags as output.

This way the user could use an AI from google, amazon, etc. or some other
source of information, whatever it might be.

But I agree with Tobias and doubt, that we will get something like this
in the near future into KPA.
