Mi­crosoft is lead­ing the blind with a new AI ap­pli­ca­tion. Point your smart­phone camera at an ob­ject and the app says what it can see. Lean­ing heav­ily on ma­chine learn­ing, the vis­ual pro­cess­ing sys­tem can recog­nise text, prod­uct bar­codes, ob­jects and peo­ple, and can even de­scribe them. For any of the 384,000 Aus­tralians with low vi­sion, this is an em­pow­er­ing ap­pli­ca­tion that of­fers a sig­nifi­acnt amount of in­de­pen­dence. Cur­rently only avail­able to iOS users, there’s no word yet on when it will reach An­droid.
