Following the demonstration will be a Q&A where members of the audience can pose questions.

Seeing AI

“A free app that narrates the world around you. Designed for the low vision community, this research project harnesses the power of AI to describe people, text and objects.

With this intelligent camera app, just hold up your phone and hear information about the world around you. Recognize and locate the faces of people you’re with, as well as facial characteristics, approximate age, emotion, and more. Hear short snippets of text instantly and get audio guidance to capture full documents.” – Microsoft

Be My Eyes

Be My Eyes is a free app that connects blind and low-vision people with sighted volunteers and company representatives for visual assistance through a live video call. Every day, sighted volunteers lend their eyes to solve tasks big and small to help blind and low-vision people lead more independent lives. – Be My Eyes
