Google announced the launch of the Digital Recognition Kit API on both Android and iOS. The API will enable developers for app creation that requires touch and stylus as inputs. This kit is built on the tech similar to Google’s AutoDraw, QuickDraw, and Gboard software keyboard. All these software analyses the end-users’ keystrokes on the display and identifies what is being written or drawn.
Google has said that the new API will help developers to enhance users’ input figures and text via a stylus or finger. It will also help to transcribe handwritten notes, which makes it searchable. This is done by classifiers that segregate data based on parsing written text into a character string, based on shapes like emojis, drawings, sketches, etc.
