A group of Stanford University students has developed a tool that combines AI and augmented reality (AR) to assist individuals during difficult conversations. The technology, called RizzGPT, uses OpenAI’s GPT-4 language model and Whisper, a voice recognition tool, to generate responses to questions asked during a conversation.
The responses can be displayed using AR glasses with a monocle, as if the individual came up with it themselves. The team refers to this technology as ‘real-time Charisma as a Service (CaaS)’ and sees potential applications for people with social anxiety, public speaking, and job interviews.
The glasses were created using Brilliant Labs’ Monocle AR technology, which offers numerous potential applications and exemplifies how AI and AR can be combined to tackle real-world problems. RizzGPT utilizes Whisper’s AI-based speech recognition to listen to conversations and generate appropriate responses based on context. This technology empowers individuals to overcome social anxiety, public speaking, and prepare for job interviews, among other things.
The project was led by Stanford students Bryan Hau-Ping Chiang, Varun Shenoy, Alix Cui, and Adriano Hernandez. They believe that this technology has the potential to make a significant impact on society, and it will be interesting to observe how it evolves in the future.
While the use of AI in social situations raises concerns about authenticity and transparency, the RizzGPT team believes that this technology can be a valuable tool for individuals who struggle with communication. It remains to be seen how this technology will be received by society, but it is an exciting development in the field of AI and AR.
say goodbye to awkward dates and job interviews ☹️
we made rizzGPT — real-time Charisma as a Service (CaaS)
it listens to your conversation and tells you exactly what to say next 😱
built using GPT-4, Whisper and the Monocle AR glasses
