Accenture develops artifical intelligence-based tech for the blind
Technology company Accenture says it has developed an artificial intelligence powered solution to help the blind experience the world around them in a better way and improve their work performance.
The solution is called Drishti, and it was developed as a part of Accenture's focus on Tech4Good. The initiative aims to apply technology to improve the way the world lives and works by solving difficult social problems.
Accenture, plans to introduce Drishti to more than 100 blind employees in India. The solution is currently being tested at Accenture in South Africa. A Spanish language version is being tested with Accenture employees in Argentina.
Drishti provides smart phone-based assistance using artificial intelligence technologies like image recognition, to describe the environment of a blind person. It was initially developed and tested with 10 blind professionals through a collaboration with the National Association for the Blind in India.
