Google can now read your doctor’s bad handwriting

Published:

A large number of doctors write medicine prescriptions in haste, making it nearly impossible for their patients to understand what they scribbled. This problem has been around for decades and many tech firms have attempted to solve it with little to no success.
Now Google is having a go at translating those unfathomable texts. The search giant announced at its annual conference in India Monday that it is working with pharmacists to explore ways to decipher the handwriting of doctors.
The feature, currently a research prototype and not ready for the public yet, allows users to either take a picture of the prescription or upload one from the photo library.
