That artificial intelligence is the future of technology is something we are already quite clear about. Little by little this is becoming a reality, and an example of this is the latest Microsoft app in the App Store. Seeing AI is a new app that makes use of artificial intelligence and the iPhone’s camera to recognize any object, person or whatever we put in front of it.
The application developed by Microsoft’s research department is one of many that are often released to test new features. On this occasion, in addition to testing with element recognition and artificial intelligence, it offers help to those who cannot see, as it is focused on describing what is being seen:
The application is available free of charge in the App Store, although it has not yet arrived in Spain, only in the App Stores of the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, India and Singapore.
With iOS 11, we have seen the arrival of augmented reality on Apple devices. The examples so far have not ceased to amaze us, and they will do so even more with the official launch of iOS 11 in the fall. Having both ARKit and this app the camera and our environment as the main protagonists , how would it be to combine them?
Surely in the coming months we will see more examples like this one of applications that make use of artificial intelligence to recognize what surrounds us. ARKit is capable of fixing the position in three dimensions of everything that surrounds us, as well as being able to place virtual elements on the stage. If an app could recognize the objects and could interact with them as ARKit does, the possibilities would be incredible.
