Microsoft Creates A New Way to Put AI to Work – Screenshot Snipping

 

A team of Microsoft interns have created a new way which would put Artificial Intelligence to work – in a screenshot snipping tool. Microsoft is launching their project today called the Snip Insights, a Windows desktop app that lets you repossess intelligent insights – or even scan of a textbook or report and turn it into an editable document – when you take a screenshot on your PC.
The team’s manager had challenged the interns to come up with a way to incorporate A.I. into a extensively used tool, which would be used by millions.
The team decided to try a screenshotting tool, like the Windows Snipping Tool or Snip,which is a previous project from Microsoft’s in-house incubator, Microsoft Garage. The team chose the second option as it proves to be easier to release it as an independent app.
Their new tool leverages Cloud AI works to do more with screenshots – like switch images to translated text, automatically detect and tag image content, and much more.
And it can identify famous people, places or landmarks in the images you confine with a screenshot.
Even though it’s comparatively a slender use for A.I., the Snip Insights tool is an interesting example of how A.I. technology can be put into everyday productivity tools – and the potential that lies ahead as A.I. becomes a part of even simple pieces of software.
The tool is being released as Microsoft Garage project, but it’s open-sourced.
