8 ways Google Lens can help make your life easier

About 15 years I watched that segment where Jacque Fresco said that doctors could in part be automated. Most people couldn’t imagine this. Google Lens may now help you identify skin conditions.

Google lens is a multi-purpose tool. It is an OCR, translator, a database scanner… It can identify a lot of things: animal breeds, specific technology models, where a text on a book comes from, where to find/shop the things you scanned…

However, I advise caution when using it, as it is not privacy-friendly and photos can be sensitive data for big tech.

Also, while it can identify skin diseases, information on how to treat that disease cannot be trusted (because there is no guarantee that the treatment info is medically accurate)
