Be a Hacker + Push the Boundaries of Tech
This scenario is typical for anyone. You are sitting down when someone hops into the train with a book in their hands. You take a glance at the book from far, and it looks interesting. Maybe you want to get it for yourself or a friend. The point is you don’t want to interrupt someone reading and ask them about the book. Barnes and Noble will introduce Charm, an AI application that uses voice and text to find books from a vague description. It collects data from Google searches, forums, blogs, talks, and videos to find titles. Charm constantly adds new information and learns from the user’s word pronunciations. Users can use anything from the color of a book to a simple word. We want to connect readers with the titles they could fall in love with more efficiently than ever before.
