Take a picture of a bike and ask, "How can I fix this?" Google Lens, Google's search engine for computer vision, is coming to Chrome Desktop. Google hasn't shared the exact timeline, but a teaser tweet showed what the feature would look like.
In desktop Chrome, you can soon right-click an image and select "Search with Google Lens," which darkens the screen and displays a crop tool so you can intelligently capture a specific image. Transferring a Google Images installation After a trip tour to the Internet, a sidebar appears showing several results.
While Google.com Image Search only tries to find similar images, the lens can detect objects in an image such as people, text, mathematical equations, animals, amazing places, products, and other items. It can translate text through the camera and even copy text from the real world (using OCR) and paste it into an app. This feature has been around for a while on Android and iOS, first as a camera-centric search that created a live viewfinder, then in Google Photos, and most recently as a long-click web image option in Chrome for Android. Google Vice President of Design Matthias Duarte now helps Google Lens help you steal its look. Google could ask the following questions to the lenses, like "socks with this style" and they seem to understand. Google This is a great image search app: “How can I fix this severe situation on the back of my bike?” If you don't know what to say, it's hard on Google. Google says the problem is probably remote and you can ask how to fix it. Google
Google Lens is getting smarter, too. A new feature of the service has been introduced that allows you to ask the following questions to search for images. Google has two impressive demos here. One of them allows the user to scan an image of the T-shirt before ordering a contest and ordering "socks with this style". It is very impossible to find a particular clothing style otherwise. You can write descriptors like "flower pattern", but it gives you the same patterns you need to go through, not the same pattern.
Another example is a really cool use of visual search: finding something you don't know the name of. In the example, the user has a broken bike and has to fix something with a back cover. They don't know what the reverse gear is called, so they take a picture of it and ask Google. This appears to be a "distraction" and from there the user types "how to fix" and Google finds the instructions.
Basically, the lens receives the ability to search for images and text at the same time. Both are great examples, but they are canned demos, so it's hard to know how each really works. Google says the feature will be available "in the coming months".
