More AI in the Everyday World

In Wired:  Which starts by describing work that Chinese group Baidu is doing in this space, still in early prototype:   " ... one of the company’s latest prototypes. It’s called DuLight. The device contains a tiny camera that captures whatever is in front of you—a person’s face, a street sign, a package of food—and sends the images to an app on your smartphone. The app analyzes the images, determines what they depict, and generates an audio description that’s heard through to your earpiece. If you can’t see, you can at least get an idea of what’s in front of you. ... " 

Note its relationship to their personal assistant system Duer.
