Phone app allows the blind to see the world
An Australia-based company called Aipoly is using smartphone technology to let the blind perceive the world once again.
The app, which is available on the Apple App Store, verbalizes objects that it sees through a smartphone’s camera.
It allows users who have gone blind over time to recover a portion of their lost ability to perceive the world around them.
Aipoly does not require a network connection, so it uses artifical intelligence that uses the computational power of the smartphone’s CPU and graphics chip. This helps it to identify and verbalize what the camera is seeing to the user.
The current version of the app is capable of recognizing 1,000 objects but the next version may be able to recognize up to 5,000 objects. It will also be available to older iPhones as well as Android devices.
