Share Your Science: Microsoft Developing Applications for the Visually Impaired

Ken Tran, Senior Research Engineer at Microsoft Research shares how they are using deep learning to create applications for people who are blind or visually impaired.

Using Tesla M40 and TITAN X GPUs with the cuDNN-accelerated Caffe deep learning framework, they have trained their language model to describe images or scenes in natural language.

The work is being used for Microsoft’s research project called Seeing AI that uses computer vision and natural language processing to describe a person’s surroundings, read text, answer questions and even identify emotions on people’s faces.
