Blippar’s car-identifying app is like SeeFood for cars

Blippar's car-identifying app is like SeeFood for cars

  • In the HBO show Silicon Valley, an app is pitched to some credulous VCs called SeeFood that’s “like Shazam for food.”
  • Weeks later, Pinterest announced that exact functionality for its own app, and now, less than a month after SeeFood’s initial parody of tech culture, we have a Shazam for cars: Blippar.
  • The app can recognize any car made after the year 2000, and show you the make, model, and year of the car, along with customer reviews, a 360 panorama of the interior, and a price quote.
  • But specific car recognition is nice addition to the app’s skill set, and probably a lot easier to monetize.
  • To that end, the company is also launching an API, so other companies can add Blippar’s object-identification tech to their apps.

‘Eureka moment’: #AI software programmed to spot skin cancer by checking pics of moles

  • Scientists at Stanford University have taught an AI to diagnose early signs of skin cancer by feeding tens of thousands of images to its recognition database.
  • Researchers are working on finding other medical uses for deep learning such as spotting diabetic retinopathy or other forms of cancer.
  • Deep learning is a series of algorithms which mimic human neural networks, allowing the AI to detect patterns in images.
  • Diagnosis is usually made by spotting the telltale signs by eye, which is where this software may become useful.
  • The researchers tested the AI against 130,000 images, comparing the results to diagnoses of 21 clinicians.


Scientists at Stanford University have taught an AI to diagnose early signs of skin cancer by feeding tens of thousands of images to its recognition database. They hope the AI would eventually become an effective cancer detection tool outside of clinics.
