Around 39 million people in the world are visually impaired.Among them 90 per cent of the world's visually impaired people live in developing countries (Like India). Who cannot afford the expensive solutions.Therefore we are providing a android application which will give vision to the blind population.
What it does
We propose a smart phone based AI driven computer vision solution using Microsoft cognitive Api's that will aid blind people to hear, in-depth contextual analysis of the objects, relation of objects with each other and their relation with the foreground and background in scene that is in front of them.
How I built it
I used the following in my project: Computer Vision Machine Learning Artificial Intelligence Mobile App Development Deep Learning.
Challenges I ran into
Training the models in python.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Learning a very new technology in this hackathon.
What I learned
How to train machine learning models and how to use Microsoft Api's.
What's next for The Blind Project
we will be adding more functionalities like guiding the blind person on the roads , detecting the distance between the object and the person, etc.
