Introducing Be My AI
Have you ever felt frustrated by limited image descriptions from artificial intelligence (AI) apps, leaving you longing for more detailed descriptions or the ability to ask questions?
We understand how important it is to have access to thorough information, and that’s why we’re excited to introduce you to be My AI, a cutting edge solution to these very issues.
The best part? It is completely free, and seamlessly integrated into an app you may already be familiar with: Be My Eyes.
Be My AI is currently in open beta on both iOS and Android. This means that Be My AI is available for everyone who uses Be My Eyes on iOS and Android, while Be My Eyes continues to develop it and make it even better than it already is, based on user feedback.
Alice, our Digital Communications Officer, who is also totally blind and passionate about investigating new technology, had the privilege of testing Be My AI early in the closed beta phase, after registering her interest as soon as she could.
This blog is based on research, both online and through her first-hand experience of using it on her iPhone.
What is Be My AI?
Be My Eyes, the app created to connect visually impaired individuals to sighted volunteers, has introduced an innovative new feature: Be My AI.
Powered by GPT-4, an advanced AI model, Be My AI generates detailed image descriptions using human-like language.
It not only generates the descriptions, it also supports the ability to ask follow-up questions, so you can get descriptions tailored to your needs.
Don’t worry – if you still need support from one of the many Be My Eyes volunteers, they are still just a call away.
