I will talk about the work Helios Vision is doing in the AI and IoT space (ex: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/intel-qa-silviu-tudor-serban124)

Giving sight to the blind is some kind of miracle. Though that feat continues to elude us, a Bucharest-based Intel® Innovator, Silviu-Tudor Serban, has set out to do the next best thing. Leveraging a background in computer vision and artificial intelligence, he and his team have designed Helios, which uses Intel® RealSense™ 3D cameras to give those with severe visual impairments a clearer view of the world. And for those with total blindness, Helios features like reading assistance, facial recognition, and a haptic interface provide a much enhanced sense of their surroundings.
