Google is creating a tool with artificial intelligence to read handwriting more accurately.
Deciphering handwritten language on a computer has proven to be tough, but Google is constantly attempting to improve its methods. The attempt by an artificial intelligence-based company to read even the dirtiest handwriting begins on a modest scale. The company focuses on a certain profession in order to assist in obtaining correct results and providing assistance in an essential component of day-to-day living.
Google has unveiled an artificial intelligence programme that can read and understand handwritten prescriptions and doctor’s notes, even if they were scribbled quickly. Although this capability is not yet available for general use, it has the potential to enhance the transcribing software used by the company.
At the Google for India event that took place in 2022, the prototype was one of the technologies that were exhibited by Google. He takes what he has learned from analysing the doctor’s writing style and applies it to the medical knowledge he already possesses.
It is possible for the tool to attempt to decipher the first and last letters of the medication if it is aware of the patient’s symptoms and the location in the prescription page where the physician is most likely to list the medication. After that, he analyses this information with the conventional approaches to treating symptoms in order to figure out which ones the physician has documented.
The feature is still in the process of being developed, and Google stresses that it is not intended to be used on its own. Already, Google Lens attempts to interpret text from photographs, but it has trouble with handwriting. The accuracy of the recipe reader can be improved with time, and it will eventually learn to decode different types of notes, including recipes.
Additionally, Google has displayed a number of new YouTube features, some of which are currently being tested in the South Asian market and may subsequently be made available in other markets across the world.
In response to the growing demand for instructional videos on YouTube, Google developed the courses platform as a resource for educators who contribute films to the platform. “Courses” will enable teachers and educators to publish videos with connected reading content and quizzes that can be accessed straight from the app shortly after it makes its debut in India.
Teachers have the option of making their films available for free or for a fee, and users who pay for videos can view them without being interrupted by advertisements. This feature, which is now in beta testing, promises to provide classes in a wide range of academic and professional topics in a number of different languages.
Another new feature that Google is introducing to YouTube in India is support for audio in many languages. YouTube videos have had the ability to incorporate subtitles in several languages for quite some time now, but Google is now working on a feature that would let users to switch between multiple audio tracks while watching videos.
First, the company will test the functionality using health films that are available in four different Indian languages: English, Hindi, and Marathi. It is possible that Google will ultimately make it possible for videos to have numerous audio tracks on YouTube around the world and for various languages. If this happens, some users won’t have to bother downloading multiple versions of the same movie.
