What it does

Blind people needs ability to see photos, like we have it. So imagine they take a photo from a picture with an specific mobile application and then say "Alexa, ask eva what is this photo?". Then by using machine learning script analyze the photo and say to them what kind of the picture they are holding in their hand.

How I built it

I did it alone in about one hour and a half. I did not complete this idea, and it's only at the first beginning level.

Challenges I ran into

  1. Install libraries on aws Lambda.
  2. Communicate with Alexa and skill.
  3. I did not have a team to build this together and faster.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I think there are a lot of usage from machine learning for blind people.

What I learned

Machine learning. Lambda.

What's next for Photos for blind people

A Mobile Application. Communication between application and alexa. Take a photo of important life things and ask questions. For instance, user wanted to choose the red shirt between 2 shirts, and just take a photo and ask which shirt is red; the left one or the right one ? Or other simple challenges that blind people are having in their life.
