Google launched her lens app a few years ago, the lens app is an app programmed by Google to identify over a billion items. This app has a lot of great wonderful features. Somehow it sounds scary when scientists say “We are still scratching on the surface of AI and expert systems”. But the future is all about new technologies.
This Google app is a great project, and it has been announced that the product has done 4 (four) times above the projections and further stating, there is more to come. When Google starts a project, they put all the effort to make it unique and complete.
What is Google Lens?
Google Lens enables you to point your phone at something, such as a specific flower, and then ask Google Assistant what the object you’re pointing at is. You’ll not only be told the answer, but you’ll get suggestions based on the object, like nearby florists, in the case of a flower. Other examples of what Google Lens can do include being able to take a picture of the SSID sticker on the back of a Wi-Fi router, after which your phone will automatically connect to the Wi-Fi network without you needing to do anything else. Yep, no more crawling under the cupboard in order to read out the password whilst typing it in your phone. Now, with Google Lens, you can literally point and shoot.
