"I think it's a young girl throwing an orange Frisbee in the park," Microsoft's AI will tell you.

Artificial intelligence is helping people do extraordinary things. At Microsoft, it's helping blind people see the world around them like never before.

In March, Microsoft showed off a prototype of its Seeing AI app, which looked very promising at the time, but the company released the free app to all iOS users on Wednesday.

Using a smartphone camera or a pair of camera-equipped smart glasses, the Seeing AI app can identify things in your environment - people, objects, and even emotions - to provide important context for what's going on around you.
