Updated with currency and color recognition, Seeing AI is available in 35 countries

iPhone with Seeing AI app

Since we first made Seeing AI available, there’s been 100,000 downloads of the app and it has assisted users with over 3 million tasks. We have never been more humbled by your feedback and are encouraged to do more! When we first released this, we launched with features such as the ability to hear what a product is via audibly locating the barcode, describing images, text and faces of friends and family as they come into view. Today, we’re excited to announce new features coming to the app that will build on these early results, provide new user experiences and allow us to continue to learn and innovate. These new features, such as currency, handwriting and color recognition, as well as light detection, are now available in the app in 35 countries, including the European Union.

Some of the new features now available in Seeing AI include:

  • Color recognition: Getting dressed in the morning just got easier with this new feature, which describes the color of objects, like garments in your closet.
  • Currency recognition: Seeing AI can now recognize the currency of US dollars, Canadian dollars, British Pounds and Euros. Checking how much change is in your pocket or leaving a cash tip at a restaurant is much easier.
  • Musical light detector: The app alerts you with a corresponding audible tone when you aim the phone’s camera at light in the environment. A newly convenient tool so you don’t have to touch hot bulbs to know that a light is switched off, or the battery pack’s LED is on.
  • Handwriting recognition: Expanding on the ability of the app to read printed text, such as on menus or signs, the newly improved ability to read handwriting means you can read personal notes in a greeting card, as well as printed stylized text not usually readable by optical character recognition.
  • Reading documents: Seeing AI can read you the document aloud without voiceover, with synchronized word highlighting. Also, it includes the ability to change the text size on the Document channel.
  • Ability to choose voices and speed: Personalization is key, and when you’re not using VoiceOver, this feature lets you choose between the voice that is used and how fast it talks.

With each of these new features, we make sure to protect personal data while ensuring the technology operates effectively and provides users the best experiences with our products. If you have questions, the Microsoft Privacy Statement explains how Microsoft collects, stores and uses personal information.

We continue to hear from you how Seeing AI is bringing value to your life. It’s more than humbling. Cameron Roles, a university lecturer at the Australian National University College of Law, believes there’s never been a better time in history to be a blind person.

“I absolutely love Seeing AI. If my children hand me a note from school or if I pick up a book, I can use Seeing AI to quickly capture that text and just give me a very brief instant overview of what’s on the document,” said Roles of the important capability the app has for reading text and handwriting. “I can quickly be right on top of it.”

“For me, I think we’re coming into a really exciting time,” said Roles. “The growth in artificial intelligence, augmented reality, self-driving cars… I feel that it’s a great time for all of us in society.”

“Technology can be such an enabler of good and such an enabler for people to shrink the world, for the world to come closer together, and for people to be able to achieve so much more than they ever could without it,” said Roles.

We’re excited to share these features and look forward to hearing from you who Seeing AI is making your world more inclusive. Its available in Apple’s App Store in 35 countries and when a new version is released, you will be shown the list of new features when you next launch the app.

Please if you have feedback, we want to hear it! This started as a prototype just a year ago, and while we’ve been thrilled with the progress, we know we have a long way to go. Please send your thoughts, feedback or questions to seeingai@microsoft.com.

If you have further questions or feedback, please contact the Disability Answer Desk. The Disability Answer Desk is there to assist via phone and chat, and in the United States, we also have an ASL option for our customers with hearing loss (+1 503-427-1234).

Progress Health Cloud tackles healthcare IT integration

The result of hospitals going digital has been the creation of disparate systems and applications, often at the expense of healthcare IT integration and a unified ecosystem in which data can flow seamlessly from one app to another.

Progress Software Corp., a software platform company based in Bedford, Mass., is hoping to fix this problem with its Progress Health Cloud, which was released today. The new enterprise cloud fully integrates front-end, back-end and data connectivity technologies into a serverless and HIPAA-compliant platform for quickly creating apps to drive patient engagement and better healthcare outcomes, Progress said in a press release.

Although Progress Health Cloud can’t solve large-scale patient data interoperability issues, it can ease associated healthcare IT integration problems, Dmitri Tcherevik, CTO at Progress, said in an interview with SearchHealthIT. “I don’t think an IT solution can be used to address a political [problem] that may exist in any particular organization … but we can help resolve it by providing an interoperable system and an integration platform,” he said. “No one has technology obstacles and difficulties as an excuse to integration, given the platform that we offer.”

The goal: A unified healthcare IT integration system

Progress’ Health Cloud comes equipped with HIPAA-compliant, prepackaged healthcare application templates, as well as prepackaged integrations with EHRs, according to the company. Some of the EHR vendors already on board include Epic Systems, Athenahealth, Cerner and GE Healthcare.

Progress’ goal is to create a unified, connected health IT ecosystem. “EHR systems are responsible for creation, collection, management and retrieval of health records in a standard format that ensures interoperability with other elements of a healthcare IT solution,” Tcherevik said. “Progress Health Cloud provides a platform for assembling a complete IT solution that includes EHR as one of its elements.”

In addition to integrating with a variety of EHR vendors, Progress’ Health Cloud also enables healthcare IT integration with applications such as patient care management, remote patient monitoring, patient self-service, preventive healthcare and community engagement, Tcherevik said.

“Each such solution requires cross-platform mobile applications, a range of cloud services and connectors to EHR systems,” he said. “Progress Health Cloud provides application templates, cloud services, connectors to EHR systems and other sources of data.”

Health Cloud uses Kinvey serverless technology

All of this runs on the Kinvey serverless cloud platform, which Progress acquired over the summer, and it includes NativeScript components, which makes it easy to build cross-platform mobile experiences, the press release said.

“Typically, when a company needs to deploy an application, it also needs to provision cloud services … like authentication, data management and event management. And provisioning those services also requires provisioning servers, machines,” he said. “It can be a virtual machine or a physical machine somewhere in the data center, and that requires a lot of effort … and that may also be expensive.”

Dmitri Tcherevik, CTO, ProgressDmitri Tcherevik

With a serverless platform, Tcherevik explained, if health IT developers build an application, they do not have to manage virtual or physical machines or servers. Rather, they only need to write code to form certain functions or services and then deploy that code on Progress’ Health Cloud platform, which will take care of the computing resources and the storage required to run the code, he said.

“There are no servers that developers have to deal with, and because of that … [Progress Health Cloud] simplifies and accelerates the whole process of application development,” Tcherevik said.

Progress has piloted its Health Cloud with organizations such as Boston Scientific, Johnson & Johnson, Athenahealth and BayHealth Development, a University of California San Francisco Health and John Muir Health joint-venture company that is focused on infrastructure development to support the needs of Canopy Health accountable care network.

Hacker behind Uber data breach was paid off through bug bounty

The hacker whom Uber reportedly paid off for its 2016 data breach has now been identified as a 20-year-old man from Florida.

The young man, who lives with his mother, was behind the Uber data breach that exposed 57 million user accounts and around 600,000 drivers, according to a Reuters’ exclusive report. The Uber hacker — whose name hasn’t been released — stole the data and then contacted Uber, which referred him to its bug bounty program. Uber then used the bug bounty program to pay the hacker $100,000 to destroy the data.

Uber’s bug bounty program is hosted by HackerOne and usually deals with smaller software bug reports that can earn between $5,000 and $10,000. HackerOne doesn’t manage Uber’s bug bounty program and thus didn’t have a say in the payment, but it does collect financial forms and a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) from those who earn bounties. Uber reportedly used the bug bounty payment to identify the hacker through the financial forms and have him sign the NDA. The ride-hailing company reportedly also performed a forensic analysis of the hacker’s computer to make sure he actually deleted the data he stole.

The data the hacker exfiltrated from the Uber data breach included names, email addresses, mobile phone numbers and driver’s license numbers, which were downloaded from AWS storage using login credentials stolen off of GitHub. The hacker reportedly paid another, unidentified, person to steal the credentials from GitHub.

In a blog post responding to the Uber data breach, the current CEO Dara Khosrowshahi noted that corporate systems and infrastructure were never actually compromised during the Uber data breach.

“At the time of the incident, we took immediate steps to secure the data and shut down further unauthorized access by the individuals,” Khosrowshahi said. “We subsequently identified the individuals and obtained assurances that the downloaded data had been destroyed. We also implemented security measures to restrict access to and strengthen controls on our cloud-based storage accounts.”

According to its sources, Reuters reported that Travis Kalanick, the CEO at the time and founder of the company, was aware of the Uber data breach and the payment made to the hacker through the bug bounty program in November 2016, despite it not being reported until November 2017.

“None of this should have happened, and I will not make excuses for it,” Khosrowshahi said. “While I can’t erase the past, I can commit on behalf of every Uber employee that we will learn from our mistakes. We are changing the way we do business, putting integrity at the core of every decision we make and working hard to earn the trust of our customers.”

In other news

  • The three most used Android integrated development environments (IDEs) are all compromised by easily exploitable vulnerabilities. Check Point security researchers found that IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse and Android Studio are affected by a vulnerable XML parser. For the attack to work, the user just needs to be tricked into loading a malicious XML manifest file. If that happens, the IDEs will activate files configured by the attacker. The Check Point researchers, Eran Vaknin, Gal Elbaz, Alon Boxiner and Oded Vanunu, were originally looking at possible vulnerabilities in APKTool, Android’s Application Package Tool, which they found also has the XML External Entity vulnerabilities. “Realizing the enormity of this vulnerability to the Android developer and researcher community, we extended our research to the vulnerable XML parser called ‘DocumentBuilderFactory’, which is being used in APKTool project,” the research team said in a blog post. The team also said that they reached out to the affected vendors, which all fixed the issue and released updates, so users of the vulnerable products should update immediately.
  • Researchers from Citizen Lab have found that Ethiopian dissidents around the world were targeted with emails containing spyware produced by an Israel-based cybersecurity company. The malware campaign was reportedly run by the Ethiopian government from 2016 until the present and targeted one of the Citizen Lab researchers, Bill Marczak, during his investigation into the spyware. “In the attacks we document, targets receive via email a link to a malicious website impersonating an online video portal,” the researchers explain in their report. “When a target clicks on the link, they are invited to download and install an Adobe Flash update (containing spyware) before viewing the video. In some cases, targets are instead prompted to install a fictitious app called ‘Adobe PdfWriter’ in order to view a PDF file.” The research team was then able to trace the spyware and found that it was commercial, created by an Israel-based company. “This report is the latest in a growing body of work that shows the wide abuse of nation-state spyware by authoritarian leaders to covertly surveil and invisibly sabotage entities they deem political threats,” the researchers said.
  • Google released 47 patches for Nexus and Pixel devices in this month’s Android Security Bulletin. Of the 47, 10 of the patches were for critical vulnerabilities. “The most severe of these issues is a critical security vulnerability in Media framework that could enable a remote attacker using a specially crafted file to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process,” the Bulletin said. Four of the other critical vulnerabilities were also in the Media framework and one critical vulnerability in the system could enable a remote code execution attack. Three of the critical vulnerabilities were in Qualcomm components and are also all remote code execution flaws, though some of them had already been publicly disclosed. Other affected components are MediaTek and Nvidia.
