Seeing AI App Describes the World

Microsoft’s Seeing AI iPhone app draws on cloud storage and AI help the visually impaired navigate their world. The app works with the smartphone’s camera to deliver an audio description of whatever object the camera is pointed. The system features six ‘channels’ that enable it to recognize and describe people, short text, currency, products, documents, and objects. For example, when pointed at a product, the system will guide the user to the barcode and then scan it to identify the object.
