In an effort to aid visually impaired smartphone users, Microsoft has introduced a Seeing AI app to the iPhone. Using what it calls computer vision, the app is able to read text, currency and even call out items in the surrounding area. It can even identify friends and read bar codes on items. The app is still early, but the developers hope it's just the beginning for this type of AI understanding. And finally, Amazon's Prime Day was another smashing success, shattering last year's records by 60%. The company also said more customers joined Prime on Tuesday than any other day in history.
