Working for People with Sight Loss

NCBI Labs Technology Live Event 34

On this Live Event we are joined by Saqib Shaikh, founder of the hugely popular Seeing AI app from Microsoft.

Available in over 70 countries, Seeing AI is a free app created by Microsoft specifically for Apple iOS devices. Using the camera on an iPhone or iPad, the app harnesses the power of AI (Artificial Intelligence) to describe nearby surroundings, people, text, and objects. It can also help to identify products using a bar code scanner. Saqib tells us where the concept of Seeing AI came from, its key features, and what’s new in the latest release.

On Meet the Team we are joined by Dereck Carolan from the Labs team to hear all about his role in NCBI.
