Harnessing the Power of AI and ML for Alt-Text Generation

Date & Time
Wednesday, March 20, 2024 - 4:20 PM PDT  
Elite 1-3  
In recent years, Generative AI has become a prominent area of research and development, playing a crucial role in various applications, including natural language processing, computer vision, and creative content generation. Generative AI models, such as GPT-3 and its successors, are capable of generating human-like text and have found applications in chatbots, content generation, and language translation. At Straive, we have developed an application called SPACE, which uses Generative AI technology to write alternative text for images that are present in higher education books and journals. Furthermore, we discuss the ethical considerations surrounding automated alt-text generation, emphasizing the importance of ensuring fairness and inclusivity in AI models and addressing potential biases. We also explore potential applications beyond web accessibility, such as enhancing content discovery and search engine optimization.
