Candide already possesses a large community on the Internet. The recently launched augmented reality tool is a cost-free solution for plant tagging and identification. Known as Candide Labels, the application is trying to reinvent plant labelling and curb the use of plastics for gardening.

The application can now be downloaded by users from the App Store. It offers individuals the chance to identify plants in gardens or their homes and label them effortlessly.

Candide, a central Bristol-based startup company, is witnessing fast growth whilst on its journey of aiding all levels of gardeners through knowledge sharing and revolutionary technologies.

Machine learning and augmented reality have undergone a lot of improvements in recent times, simultaneously with the rise of mobile devices capable of offering these technologies. Candide is helping the gardening experience evolve considerably. The company was formed with the mission of helping individuals obtain better outputs from their gardens, enabling wider community connectivity, and using technology to make advancements. Another objective of the company was making gardening a better experience for everyone.

Both machine learning and augmented reality technologies are utilised by Candide Labels. However, the application offers a simplistic experience for its users. A user can load up the application instantly, and position the device camera lens for focusing on the plant that requires identification. The application searches the large database of Candide to find a match and suggest the plant’s name to users. It enables users to assign a virtual label to plants.
