Google Lens Turns Your Phone Camera Into an AI-Powered Visual Search Tool

In addition to stepping on Photoshop’s toes, Google also spent some time at yesterday’s keynote showing off something called “Google Lens”: a technology that basically turns your phone’s camera into an artificially intelligent visual search tool.
