Apple has a secret workout facility tucked away in a nondescript office space outside of its new HQ, where researchers are collecting reams of health data for the next generation of products, starting with the Apple Watch

The company opened up (some of) the facility’s doors to Men’s Health for an inside look at the lab where Apple has tracked more activity and exercise data than any other human performance study in history — at least according to Apple director of fitness for health activities Jay Blahnik. He told the the publication that the health team has “logged 33,000 sessions with over 66,000 hours of data, involving more than 10,000 unique participants” over the past five years. Read more…

Microsoft’s Seeing AI app for the blind now reads handwriting

Artificial intelligence took center stage at Microsoft's AI Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. Aside from announcing AI smarts for a range of software -- from Bing to Office 365 -- the tech titan is also ramping up its Seeing AI app for iOS, which uses computer vision to audibly help blind and visually impaired people to see the world around them. According to Microsoft, it's nabbed 100,000 downloads since its launch in the US earlier this year, which convinced the tech titan to bring it to 35 countries in total, including the EU.

It's also getting a bunch of new features. The app now boasts more currency recognition, adding British pounds, US dollars, Canadian dollars, and Euros to its tally. Going beyond the color in a scene, it can also spot the color of specific objects, like clothes. Plus, it's no longer restricted to just short printed text, with handwriting recognition now part of its skill set. You can also customize the voice that it uses to speak its observations out loud, and set how fast it talks.

Finally, a musical light detector alerts you to the light in an environment with an audible tone -- Microsoft claims the tool will save users from having to touch a hot bulb or LED battery to check if it's on. Despite the big update, there's still no word on an Android launch.
