Prisma, the app that lets you turn regular photos into beautiful artworks with a single tap, now works offline. 

Since the app uses neural network-based tech to apply its photo filters, it has so far required an internet connection. The required computing power was simply too great. And some of the work needed to be offloaded to remote servers. 

Now, Prisma has managed to implement the neural network tech into the smartphone app, which should make it much faster. 

How much faster? Well, it depends on how powerful your smartphone is. Prisma tells users it’ll take 2.5 seconds for an iPhone 6S to process a photo, and 3 seconds for an iPhone 6 to do the same. Previously, it could take anywhere from 2 to 10 seconds for the app to apply a filter. When the company’s servers were clogged up by requests, this time sometimes extended to unbearable lengths for many users.  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.
