Google roll out new Lens AI features

Speaking at today's 'A.I.Stralian Stories' event in Sydney, Google's VP of Google Photos and Communications Anil Sabharwal announced the impending rollout of several new features for the company's Google Lens app.

Initially shown off at this year's Google I/O 2018 developers conference, the Google Lens app now supports two new features.

The first, called 'style-matching' allows users to highlight an item of clothing in the real-world using their camera and then do a visual search for fashion or accessories that would complement that item.

The other new feature that's been rolled out is real-time results, which allows you to receive Google Lens suggestions or tool-tips based on what you're actively looking at through your smartphone's camera - rather than having Lens scan the image after the fact.

Sabharwal reiterated plans to bring other new features like color pop and recolorization, shown off at both today's event and I/O 2018, to the company's Photos app later this year.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
