To aid visually impaired people with identifying colors and images

This project was created in response to the difficulties faced by visually impaired people in identifying objects and/or colors.

See The World strives to give the visually impaired independence by offering image recognition technology.

At the start of the project the team anticipated using Cloudsight's image recognition API to identify currency for blind people. Due to the limited time frame we shifted our focus to identifying colors rather then currency. Now See The World appeals to color blind people seeking to identify the colors of their images.

Together these girls developed a way for the visually impaired to see the world based on the technological resources available to them.

This project was made by Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program students at Knight - FIU.
