Big kudos to Kara Technologies for creating an AI-powered avatar making content accessible to the deaf!
The article states, “Kara translates different materials – books, audio, video – into sign language. We do this by using artificial intelligence (AI) and hyperrealistic avatars to provide accessibility to deaf people.”
Its incredible work when you read the article and see how complex an undertaking this is. What’s even more beautiful is their primary intention being for children.
“Niki’s (the avatar) high fidelity face and emotional expressions gives her the ability to be fully independent from a human and communicate without any barriers.”
So exciting to see AI being used for social good in this way, and in particular to read about their attention to the details of emotional expression. What a way to increase engagement and brain activation!
