Can AI smart glasses make blind people more independent?

Using AI-powered smart glasses can improve personal independence for visually impaired people, according to one blind user of the technology.
Stuart Beveridge, who is visually impaired and has been blind since birth, relies on his guide dog around the clock.

But since 2020, he has been using smart glasses with software which can take a photo and describe his surroundings. It can also connect him with loved ones who can access his video vision.

“I’m actually doing a lot more on my own,” Mr Beveridge said.
