A couple of days ago, Microsoft released an accessibility app for the blind. It harnesses basic AI tech to utilise your iPhone’s camera and do stuff like recognise people’s emotions. It will be able to do many cool and helpful things, such as read books and documents to you, and identify stuff by the barcode to tell you what it is. It will also scan people and tell you stuff about them like their gender and mood, based on their expression. It can also describe your surroundings to you.
Microsoft says that the testers were very happy with the app, and I like it a lot too. It’s only available for iOS right now, and Microsoft have not mentioned an Android version.
