Introducing EnChroma. EnChroma lenses look like ordinary tinted lenses, but when you look through them something amazing happens: your experience of color vision is fundamentally transformed. Colors appear more vibrant, saturated, full, and yet without compromising the accuracy or color balance ...

for query [nootropic]
Google gives a box with knowledge answer from a site with user generated content instead of medical authoritative answer
IMHO it's not the best sort of answer for medical queries

Computer vision isn't just object recognition anymore.  Our team at Baidu Research - IDL, working with UCLA, has developed a deep learning system that can look at a picture and try to answer specific questions about it, such as "What is the color of the bus?" or even the more complex "What is there on the grass, except the person?"  If you had told me two years ago we'd be able to do this today I wouldn't have believed you. Congrats to Wei Xu and team on this stunning progress!  See the details here: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-05-22/what-s-in-this-picture-ai-becomes-as-smart-as-a-toddler 
Developments in machine learning allow computers to answer more complex questions about the contents of images
