Google is working on an AI model that will be able to translate difficult handwritings and it is focusing on doctor notes and prescriptions.
If you’ve ever tried to read a note from a doctor before going to the pharmacy, you will understand why this tool could be powerful.
Google revealed the AI during an its annual event in India, on Monday. The company demonstrated how the tool can detect what drugs are in the poorly written notes. However, the search giant did not give us a date to expect it, only that it will be boarded on Google Lens.
It added that there is still much work to be done on the AI model before it is ready to be used in real-world situations.
“This will act as an assistive technology for digitising handwritten medical documents by augmenting the humans in the loop such as pharmacists, however no decision will be made solely based on the output provided by this technology,” Google said.
Google Lens already has so much power as it can convert handwritten texts to documents, identify objects in pictures and show you where to buy them, and several other visual matches services. This bad handwriting reading feature will boost the usefulness of the service greatly.
As part of the event, Google CEO Sundar Pichai also reiterated the company’s dedication to the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration.
