About Virtual Volunteer by Be My Eyes
Whether you need a pair of sharp eyes or have some sight to lend, Be My Eyes is a simple, free tool to help people see the world better, together.
Virtual Volunteer tool, currently in beta testing, will push further toward achieving the goal to improve accessibility, usability, and access to information globally, and aligns us with OpenAI’s stated principles on developing safe and responsible AI.
The Virtual Volunteer feature from Be My Eyes will be integrated into the existing app and is powered by OpenAI’s new GPT-4 language model, which contains a dynamic new image-to-text generator. Users can send images via the app to an AI-powered Virtual Volunteer, which will answer any question about that image and provide instantaneous visual assistance for a wide variety of tasks.
This technology will be transformative in providing people who are blind or have low vision with powerful new resources to better navigate physical environments, address everyday needs, and gain more independence.
This feature is currently in a closed beta and is being tested for feedback among a small subset of our users.
