Volley is a high-tech education and learning app that allows students to simply point their smartphone's camera at a page in their textbook and instantly access resources about key facts and challenging parts as well as links to online classes and study guides that help. The app makes use of natural language processing algorithms and futuristic machine learning capabilities to make this happen in an automatic manner.
