Blindsight Mission
To use the latest advances in machine vision technology to build software and assistive devices for blind and visually impaired persons.
For example:
If a street sign is too far away for someone to read, they want to make a device that will read the sign for the person using digital imaging and then speak out the name of the street sign over an audio speaker:
The steps to do this are:
  1. Take a picture of the street sign using a portable device
    (E.g.: a fancy digital camera).
  2. Run a machine vision algorithm over the digital picture to discover the name of the street on the street sign.
  3. Read the name of the street aloud over an audio speaker.
