"Be My Eyes" Releases the New "Be My AI" Capability to the Public

From the Be My Eyes team:
"The day we’ve all been eagerly anticipating has finally arrived. We are excited to announce that we will be launching “Be My AI” to the public on Monday, September 25. The reason for this short notice is that we’ve just learned OpenAI will be integrating GPT Vision into GPT-4 Plus (for paying customers) on Monday, allowing us to go public."

Up until now, the "Be My AI" function had only been available to beta testers. The "Be My AI" function enables users of the "Be My Eyes App" to take a photo and have the AI describe the photo. The user can then ask the AI follow up questions about the photo to get more details. Users can still ask a sighted volunteer for help if they wish.

About Eyes On Success:

This half-hour weekly podcast and radio program discusses products, services and daily living tips for people with vision loss. It is available through radio reading services across North America, via several internet streaming services, and to everybody else as a podcast. To date, the show has been downloaded in all 50 states in the US and over 100 other countries on all the inhabited continents. Eyes On Success is hosted and produced by Peter Torpey and Nancy Goodman Torpey.

Each episode is basically a success story. Some are human stories of visually impaired people's accomplishments in academics, employment, sports or pasttimes. Others are descriptions of adaptive aids that enable visually impaired people to achieve things. These include screen readers, magnifiers, navigation aids, and others. In all cases, the focus is on success.

Eyes On Success has been airing weekly since January 2011. Prior to January 2013 the name of the show was ViewPoints. Other than the name, nothing has changed.

About The Logo:

The logo is a black square with rounded corners and has the letters EOS in silver across the top with 4 silver lines fanning out downwards from the bottom of the O. Since the initials of the show's name (Eyes On Success) spell the name of the Greek goddess of the dawn (EOS), the logo was designed to give the impression of a sunrise which in turn provides a positive uplifting feeling in keeping with the theme of the show. We are grateful to our daughter Allison for the graphic design work.
