Google Lens helps make your smartphone camera smarter. Point your phone at text, and Lens translates. Point your phone at a restaurant, and Lens shows you reviews and images of menu items. Focus on a flower, and Lens tries to identify it.
In part, Google Lens relies on machine learning to identify objects. For example, the ability for Google Lens to recognize a flower relies on a process that requires access to a large number of images of flowers; that process works reasonably well with items when large numbers of example images exist.
But some objects are unique, such as a work of art or a custom-designed object. To identify these objects, the system must match an object set of one, which is where Wescover comes in.
