The world is getting better at combining machine learning and computer vision, but it’s not just cars and drones that benefit from that. For instance, the same technology could be used to dramatically improve the lives of people with visual impairments, enabling them to be more independent.
We, at Abto Software believe that science and technology should work together to better people’s lives, not just drive business profits. Recently we have partnered with a company that shares our beliefs and core values – We go Vision to develop what-could-be world’s most advanced wearable assistive technology for visually impaired people.
WeGoVision is an Israel-based startup that aims to develop a product for visual assistance named “Go Freedom” that will help visually impaired people walk safely and independently. This innovative product will utilize latest technologies in the field of computer vision and machine learning to give “sight” to the blind. For more information about the product by WeGoVision, please visit http://igofreedom.com/.
Unlike others, this new type of a product will adapt to individual users’ experiences, modifying the guidance it provides as the machine ‘learns’ from its landscape and from the human interaction. This data is detected by the device camera and used to identify the objects as the user moves around the space. Recently the company has started the campaign to gather support for this incredibly important project.
“Thank you to those who are working on and supporting this project. Alone we can do so little; together we can create a better world ” – Izidor Gershkovich, CEO of We Go Vision.
If you’d like to become a supporter and help build a better world please visit http://igofreedom.com/ for more information.
