Latest developments indicate that soon you will be able to translate a doctor’s handwritten notes using Google’s AI translate tool.
According to a source, Google is collaborating with pharmacists to develop a model that would use machine learning and AI (Artificial Intelligence) to translate difficult-to-read handwritten notes, which doctors are known to have. This new AI translation tool was showcased by Google on Monday during its annual “Google for India” conference.
On medical prescriptions, sloppy handwriting can result in deadly pharmacological errors and even accidental deaths. According to a survey from the Institute of Medicine (IOM), pharmacists and healthcare professionals misunderstand bad handwriting to the tune of 1.5 million injuries annually. To cut down on these mistakes, certain US states have established electronic prescribing systems.
How Will Google Lens Work?
If it is a success, the app offered by Google could be a useful tool in lowering the amount of damage brought on by poor handwriting on prescriptions. It might not just be utilized in India, but also by people and medical professionals everywhere.
If you’re traveling abroad, Google Lens is a useful tool. Additionally, it can recognize objects, plants, and animals to support your exploration of your surroundings.
It might also function as a useful shopping companion app. If you come across something you like, Google Lens will show you where to buy it.
With the help of the software, shoe companies may make 3D models of its goods publicly available. It will display how the shoes would appear if you open it, pick a pair of shoes that are on sale, then point your camera at your feet. You can use its AR technology to order your favorite size and pair online.
The unreadable doctor’s notes could soon be read by Google Lens. As a result, you can find it simpler to get substantial over-the-counter medications.
Beyond the Lens, the search engine company is increasing its augmented reality capabilities. “Google Play Services for AR” is a system update that was just released.
