CS Majors Among Finalists for 2022 InVenture Prize
Meet Megan Dass, a second-year computer science major and one of six finalists competing in this year’s Inventure Prize.
Dass created an application called Magic Crop, which uses artificial intelligence to crop photos into professional looking headshots that use the rule of thirds.
Das isn't the lone CS major in the competition. In fact, three out of six of this year’s competitors are from the College of Computing. Reflex is an emergency drone delivery system created by CS majors Nevin Gilbert and Usman Jamal. SooHoon Choi, Daksh Gupta, Robert Liddell, and Ethan Perry are CS majors and founders of Tabnam, an AI-powered shopping assistant.
The 2022 InVenture Prize Finals are this evening at 7:30 p.m. in the Ferst Center Theater. Tickets are still available. The competition is also being televised locally on Georgia Public Broadcasting.
Contrary to reports, @OpenAI probably isn’t building humanity-threatening #AI@GeorgiaTech professor @mark_riedl gives a good overview of the problem and expert context. https://t.co/GnM3VvsiBe pic.twitter.com/9v9nF1Wszm— Georgia Tech Computing (@gtcomputing) November 29, 2023
A wrongful arrest. A “racist robot.” A call for new laws.— Georgia Tech Computing (@gtcomputing) November 10, 2023
A @GeorgiaTech experiment trained a robot to seemingly act out racist behavior, to prove bias can exist in #AI. @MatthewGombolay opens up his lab to show where research can help address tough social issues. https://t.co/21F7IV0vbH pic.twitter.com/P3GD29lth1
