The feature is first being added to Google Photos and the personalized AI software Assistant, which is available on an increasing number of devices. Documents are consistently too dark. Full Review

Welcome to Google IO 2017 On Wednesday at Google's annual developer conference in Mountain View, California, the tech giant unveiled a series of new software features and updates that emphasized the company's intensified focus on artificial intelligence, voice as an interface, and accessibility for new users in the developing world. The Assistant on iOS is available on version 9.1+.

Chris Ness April 19, 2017 This is the best scan, picture, OCR application I have found to get small font table data from hard copy to excel editable file. A few things Lens can do: Tell you what species a flower is just by viewing the flower through your phone’s camera; Read a complicated Wi-Fi password through your phone’s camera and automatically log you into the network; Offer you reviews and other information about the restaurant or retail store across the street, by you just flashing your camera over the physical place. Of all announcements, it best encapsulated what Google’s transition to an “AI first” company means.

Always availableThe Assistant is already available on more than 100 million devices and starting today, we’re bringing the Google Assistant to iPhones. The electronics lie outside of both the pupil and the iris so there is no damage to the eye. The controller will gather, read, and analyze data that will be sent to the external device via the antenna. As mainstream phone cameras improve, and the trend towards multiple lenses in high-end phones continue, there's every chance VPS could eventually become a standard Lens feature.

The artificially intelligent, augmented reality feature seemed to generate the most interest at Google’s developer conference that wrapped up Friday. And to add insult to injury, the automatically generated file names usually don't end up in alphabetical order, meaning when you select them in Windows for printing to PDF, they don't come out in the right order. Pichai said in his founders’ letter a year ago that part of this shift to being an AI first company meant computing would be less device-centric. So please improve Microsoft. Lens brings Google’s use of AI into the physical world. But in considering how this new visual search option may play out, compare it to voice search, which for now often returns read-outs of whatever would appear at the top of search, sometimes resulting in answers that are inaccurate, offensive or lacking in context. Scott Huffman, Vice President of Engineering for Assistant, mentioned using Lens to translate a Japanese street sign and using it to identify a food he didn’t recognize. Huffman said Lens facilitates a conversation between the user and Assistant using visual context and machine learning.

Another example Pichai offered was how Lens could recognize the context of what you're doing. That means Google will have a place on users’ phones even if its own hardware like the Pixel phone fails to catch on. I have even used leading industry OCR software on a desktop with a flatbed scanner. Google also cleverly incorporated Lens into one of the company’s most-used apps, Photos, which has gained half a billion users in the two years since its launch. CamScanner is much better.


With Google Lens, your smartphone camera won’t just see what you see, but will also understand what you see to help you take action. Google CEO Sundar Pichai underscored the tool as a key reflection of Google’s direction, highlighting it in his Google I/O keynote as an example of Google being at an "inflection point with vision.” "All of Google was built because we started understanding text and web pages. A tiny pinhole in the lens allows for tear fluid to seep into the sensor to measure blood sugar levels. Several of the company's marquee products got improvements or additions, including Gmail, Google Assistant, Google Home, Google Photos, YouTube, and its Android OS. One developer commented to me it was “the first time AI is more than a gimmick.” Typing a question into Assistant, for example, can feel like just using Google Search in a separate window. Even though I have to copy from Word to Excel it converts data the most accurately. During the demo, a phone's camera was pointed at a WiFi router's password label and WiFi network name, and Google Assistant automatically connected the phone to that WiFi network.

Andrew G Really not up to par as a scanning app. The incorporation could help Google become more essential to mobile users by making its mobile apps more essential. Power will be drawn from the device which will communicate data via the wireless technology RFID. Here is augmented reality at work doing exactly what people know Google can do, which is retrieve information from the web. #io17 pic.twitter.com/viOmWFjqk1 — Google (@Google) May 17, 2017

CEO Sundar Pichai introduces Google Lens in his 2017 Google I/O keynote Google If you want to know where Google is headed, look through Google Lens. Lens affirms a consistency of focus for Google. The technology behind Lens is essentially nothing new, and that also tells us something about where Google is going. Both of the sensors are embedded between two soft layers of lens material. But dear microsoft, please improve the app as it is lacking many features when compared to CamScanner. Add this new computer vision capability, though, and you have something a browser search box can’t do. Full Review

The service seems very ambitious and versatile. There is a wireless antenna inside of the contact that is thinner than a human’s hair, which will act as a controller to communicate information to the wireless device. Plans to add small LED lights that could warn the wearer by lighting up when the glucose levels have crossed above or below certain thresholds have been mentioned to be under consideration. This is not to say that Google is done coming up with new technologies, but that there are a lot of capabilities the company is still putting together into useful products. Of all announcements, it best encapsulated what Google’s transition to an “AI first” company means. The quality of the output is not good enough when compared to CamScanner. YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said that watch time in the living room is growing by more than 90 percent a year. The performance of the contact lenses in windy environments and teary eyes is unknown.



At a more advanced level, Google's VPS (visual positioning system) builds on the foundations of Google Lens on Tango devices to pinpoint specific objects in the device's field of vision, like items on a store shelf. Here are the highlights:Google showed off its new mobile OS, Android O, which is packed with small – but meaningful – updates, including more intuitive usability and tweaks to optimize your device's battery, performance, and security. Microsoft has come a long way, but this is crap in all honesty. It effectively acts as a search box, and shows Google’s adaption to the move amongst younger users toward visual media. More importantly, we should be able to do multiple-page black-and-white scans to PDF - you'd think that's what we have scanner apps for. May 4, 2017 The app is good for syncing to Microsoft account.
