BlindSpotAI at StartUp Weekend in Google Dublin

My team BlindSpotAI, a Deep Learning Object Recogizer App, competed at the StartUp Weekend in Google Dublin sponsored by Bank of Ireland.

We use AI to help blind & visually-impaired people find objects using voice-activated phone scanning. This technology can be used offline and has been developed for Android using Tensorflow pre-trained models.

It was a superb experience! We took home the Special Mention award, check our demo out!

Blind Spot - have created a MVP for their app that enables visually impaired people to find items. Big shout out to @markpollock for helping the team validate their idea✨#SWDub @SWDub pic.twitter.com/YPVbZjMdQH
