Yesterday at Build 2016 Microsoft promoted how its APIs have inspired one of its software engineers, Saqib Shaikh, to create an app that could help blind people navigate in the world.
Watch the below video :
Shaikh is blind since his he was 7, and is working for Microsoft UK since 10 yrs. Shaikh created an app “Seeing AI” using Intelligence API’s from Microsoft Cognitive Service. Shaikh’s app works both on Phone as well as Pivothead Smart GLASSES. His app can see objects and people and then translate what the glases sees to shaikh via audio message.
His app can saythe gender, age, his facial expressions whether he is happy or sad? The smartphone version of Seeing AI can also take a picture of a paper with text, like a menu, and then offer an audio version of that menu.
This is just a research project, Microsoft can bring this feature in future updates for phones too!
