Mark's latest development
As it has become kind of a routine, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO & Founder of Facebook announced through his personal profile, this week, a cool feature the platform has developed. Facebook will be integrating to the services available a new addition.
As Mark stated himself:
Just launched a tool that uses artificial intelligence to help people who are blind experience photos on Facebook.
When blind or visually impaired people use the internet, they use something called a screen reader that turns text into spoken words. But until now, screen readers haven’t been able to describe what’s in a photo.
Using artificial intelligence, we’re able to understand what’s in a photo and describe that for someone using words. This is a great use of AI technology, and it’s an important step towards making sure everyone has equal access to information and is included in the conversation.
