word.camera

word.camera is a curious new website that can magically transform a photograph into words, sentences, and paragraphs that describe what’s seen in your image.

The site was developed and launched by Ross Goodwin, a photography enthusiast, technologist, and language hacker who’s current doing grad school at NYU. Prior to returning to school, Goodwin served as a ghostwriter for private companies and the Obama administration. Then he got interested in natural language processing.

Visit word.camera, and your browser will ask for access to your webcam. Once you provide it, you can frame a shot using the live view box on the screen and then press the red camera button to snap a photo.

The system then spends some time analyzing your shot and turning it into words

  • Awoke at 6:15am.  As hotel toilet not functioning; R and I dash to the lobby to use the bathroom and we arrive early for the free hotel breakfast.  Sad to learn of the Nigerian university students being taken hostage by terrorists.  Will it ever end?
  • When we arrived for breakfast – a group of 4-5 caucasian locals were seated.  When they saw us; they gave us a “look” and got up and left.  Fortunately R was too sleepy to take notice.  Glad the children were not raised in Kentucky.  It is times like this when it would help to have a Republican looking white haired man with us.
  • Used Chromebook to see if we should take the northern or southern route home to California.  Really about the same distance; though no time to see the Grand Canyon; taking the southern route allows us to see Santa Fe; which I think R would enjoy.
  • A possible driving scenario:
