The technology of photo processing by machine learning was presented last May at the Google I / O conference. It uses computer vision algorithms to identify objects caught in the camera lens and provides information about them – you can even consider it as an artificial “Google Eye”.
Applications of the mass: from the definition of unfamiliar plants and view reviews of the restaurant by its signboard before automatically connecting to Wi-Fi after installing a new router. In the latter case, the camera needs to be sent to a sticker with the network name and the default password located on the router.
By analogy, by pointing the smartphone camera to the signboard, the user will be able to get all the necessary information about the institution (working hours, menu, reviews), or by photographing an architectural monument, learn more about a particular landmark.
