Google Lens new feature helps students to solve any difficult math problem just by taking a picture
Google Lens is an image recognition technology developed by Google, designed to bring up relevant information related to objects it identifies using visual analysis based on a neural network. First announced during Google I/O 2017, it was first provided as a standalone app, later being integrated into Android’s standard camera app. And now the company has upgraded it with an amazing feature that helps students to solve their difficult math problems easily.
In this pandemic situation, the company has focused more on the education section and provided multiple facilities to students, teachers, and parents. The feature is the part of The Anywhere School project led by the company. The Google-owned app Socratic will be available to students (and parents) soon. Socratic and Lens will provide quick access to helpful results such as step-by-step guides and detailed explainers that will assist in solving the problem and give a better understanding of key concepts.
According to Google, when students encounter a particularly difficult math equation, they can use Google Lens to help. Simply take a photo of an equation using Lens, and the Google-owned service Socratic will provide students with helpful results. Socratic and Google Lens will display step-by-step guides to solve the problem, along with detailed explainers to better understand key concepts.
Previously we also saw that the technology giant Google partners with Maharashtra State Schooling Division to provide 1 Lakh e-classrooms for free. Moreover, this not only the company has done for the education sector in the country. Back in July, Google introduced a partnership with the Central Board of Secondary Schooling (CBSE) to push training in India by serving to academics and establishments in digitizing the educational expertise.
