Priyanjali Gupta, a fourth-year computer science student specializing in data science at the Vellore Institute of Technology, went viral on LinkedIn after using AI to translate American sign language (ASL). Gupta got the idea from her mom, who pushed her to put her engineering degree to good use. “She taunted me,” she told Interesting Engineering. “But it made me contemplate what I could do with my knowledge and skillset.” “The dataset is made manually by running the Image Collection Python file that collects images from your webcam for or all the mentioned below signs

Whether we’re talking about ChatGPT, AI lawyers or the chatbot that lets you chat with Tupac in real time – generative AI is taking the world by storm. But these systems are also reproducing many of the same biases we see in the real world – from sexist performance reviews to racist images. Leading AI ethicist Dr Timnit Gebru, known for her groundbreaking research on the risks of large language models, was forced forced out of her position as the co-head of Google’s AI ethics team after raising issues of

Ernst & Young (EY) Metaverse Lab has announced that it will showcase Ancestral Archives, an interactive AI-enabled art installation created by artist-in-residence Josie Williams to spotlight the work of historic Black leaders. The EY Metaverse Lab program brings together artists and engineers to explore some of the world’s most challenging issues. For example, Williams is a creative and ‘afro-futurist’ working to combat bias and social injustice.  Developed in collaboration with EY Metaverse Lab and NEW INC, the metaverse art installation will leverage Williams’ digital experience to showcase how AI and the metaverse can

Black-owned startup Robin AI has raised $10.5 million to transform the legal industry with its AI-driven contract editor. What is Robin AI? Robin AI is the brainchild of former Clifford Chance lawyer Richard Robinson and former machine learning research scientist James Clough. The startup trained its machine learning model on data from 4.5 million legal documents with input from in-house lawyers to create a ‘lawyer bot’ that can draft and edit legal contracts. On average, users can draft and negotiate contracts up to 80% faster, saving up to 75% on

Four-time NBA champion Stephen Curry has partnered with AI platform Simplicity to help increase the quality of life for city-dwellers across the country.  Simplicity is an AI-driven platform offering a one-stop shop for everything happening in a city.

In an ideal world, the development of AI will come with no added biases. But, unfortunately, this is not the case.  As many organizations look to find a solution to AI bias, reports suggest bringing more Black women into data science will help eliminate this issue – but is it true? Diversifying data science If the developers behind AI systems look, sound, and share the same life experiences, how can we expect to have a tool reflective of society? Novelist Chimamanda Adichie touched upon this when highlighting the dangers of “a single

If you don’t know Edward Tian yet, now is the time to get to know him. The 22-year-old senior at Princeton University has developed an app to counteract the abuse and misuse of the AI chatbot, ChatGPT.  Who is Edward Tian?  Tian is the mastermind behind the new tool GPTZero, which helps educators determine whether ChatGPT has written an essay or document.  According to NPR, the entrepreneur never planned to create a sought-after program. After majoring in computer science and minoring in journalism at Princeton University, Tian planned to graduate from college and

It appears everywhere you go; artificial intelligence (AI) seems to be the only two words on everyone’s lips. From the rise in AI-powered chatbots to the new era of computer-generated art, it’s hard to turn a blind eye to – what could be – the future of technology.   However, according to a new report by Slate, AI still has a long way to go before it is considered an adequate extension of human intelligence.  AI’s Inability To Create Realistic Hands  Slate journalist, Heather Tal Murphy, investigated AI’s inability to create hands and found something

Kieran Snyder, co-founder and CEO of the augmented writing platform Textio, recently took a deep dive into the inner workings of ChatGPT. She soon discovered that it doesn’t take much for the OpenAI’s chatbot to sprout racist and sexist comments.  So what happened?  Writing for Fast Company, Snyder explained she had asked the chatbot to generate generic performance reviews for interview candidates. The chatbot was tasked with providing high-quality feedback that didn’t touch on the candidates’ personalities but more about why their work experience didn’t make them a good fit

If you could say anything to your favorite historical figure, what would you say? A new AI chatbot, Historical Figures, allows users to go back in time and speak to their favorite icons.  The Historical Figures app, designed by Sidhant Chadda, is an artificial intelligence chatbox that allows users to travel back in time to speak to some of their favorite historical figures.  The AI chatbot – which outlets have described as the ‘platform that lets famous dead people like to you’ – has taken social media by storm. After just being
