    Google Lens, an AI in your camera that identify object

    Google Lens is going to work hand-in-hand with Google Assistant, using AI capabilities to identify objects in the world around you and project actionable information and about those objects onto your screen.

    With Lens, Google’s Assistant will be able to identify objects in the world around you and perform actions based on Google’s various apps.

    For example, Lens can help you identify a flower you’re looking at using Google image search, or provide you with restaurant recommendations based on your location in Google Maps.

    However, it is reportedly being integrated into both Google Assistant and Google Photos, but just like the object recognition feature, we have no idea when exactly it’s going to be added or how it’ll work when it does.

    The service seems very ambitious and versatile. Scott Huffman, Vice President of Engineering for Assistant, mentioned using Lens to translate a Japanese street sign and using it to identify a food he didn’t recognize.

    Huffman said Lens facilitates a conversation between the user and Assistant using visual context and machine learning.
