ISSAI paper won the Excellent Paper Award in Japan

ISSAI paper “ChatGPT for Visually Impaired and Blind” won the Excellent Paper Award at the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Information and Communication (ICAIIC 2024). The conference was organized in Japan at the Nakanoshima Center of Osaka University between 19 and 22 February 2024.

The paper was authored by Askat Kuzdeuov, Olzhas Mukayev, Shakhizat Nurgaliyev, Alisher Kunbolsyn, and Huseyin Atakan Varol. The work presented an assistive mobile application with an intuitive user interface (UI) for visually impaired and blind people to interact with ChatGPT via natural conversation. The app employs a number of advanced technologies such as automatic speech recognition (ASR), text-to-speech (TTS), keyword spotting (KWS), voice activity detection (VAD), and a convenient UI to interact with ChatGPT effortlessly.

This external recognition once again highlights the quality of ISSAI’s work and the potential of Kazakhstan’s youth if they are provided with the necessary resources.
