Google Lens is a visual search tool that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to identify objects in the real world and provide information about them. It allows users to point their smartphone camera at an object and receive information about it, such as the name of a plant or the ingredients in a dish.
Google is now planning to use AI to help people understand doctor’s handwriting. The tool will use the smartphone’s camera to scan the letter and highlight keywords that may be related to drugs or medical treatments. It will also provide translations for any medical terminology or shorthand that may be unfamiliar to the user.
This new feature is being developed in collaboration with pharmacists and is intended to make it easier for people to understand their prescriptions and treatment instructions. The goal is to improve patient care and reduce the risk of errors due to misunderstanding or miscommunication.
