How many times, every day, do we notice objects that attract our curiosity, but we don’t know where to buy them and the relative cost?
is meant to answer these questions. Actually, the Mountain View app already existed, but in recent months, thanks to the investments made in artificial intelligence
and machine learning
, it has been totally rethought to offer a unique experience to the users.
Google Lens allows not only to recognize what is depicted in an image but also what is framed with the smartphones camera
, in real time.
can automatically detect artworks, barcodes, books, buildings and monuments, panoramas and places of interest, newspaper and magazine covers, music albums, movies, video games, etc., providing useful information on each object framed with the camera.
The Mountain View app
is therefore able to recognize the objects that we frame with the camera using artificial intelligence to compare what the smartphone “sees” with the images stored in the Google servers.
