Early social results show EA and FIFA 2018 are winning E3

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (3) show floor opens today for as many as 65,000 attendees in Los Angeles. But the big companies have already been battling for attention with press events that started on Saturday. Synthesio, a social intelligence platform, has pulled all the data for conversations about E3 on the Internet, and it shows that Electronic Arts is leading the buzz with 31.4 percent of all mentions and 26.4 percent of all mentions for its FIFA 18 soccer game.

That could mean that EA made the right move in going first on Saturday, and that Sony and Nintendo are lagging in this data simply because they’re the last to hold their events. Synthesio will update the results as they come in, and you can expect the standings to change. But here’s what it has measured so far.

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.
