Your Personal Vision Assistant — Here to Serve You
Through developing AI4Sight, we’ve witnessed firsthand how the intersection between AI and medicine can be incredibly useful in improving people’s lives. This winning combination has the power to revolutionize the way people with visual impairments live their lives. Our goal is to use AI4Sight to maximize the efficiency and safety of navigation for people with vision impairments, as safe travel results in fewer injuries and deaths.
Tia's uncle has a condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa, a genetic eye condition in which the photoreceptors in the eye degenerate over time, rendering affected individuals blind. As a child, she noticed how he struggled to navigate her house during family visits and had trouble performing daily tasks.
Therefore, Tia was inspired to make an app to help him avoid injuries and reduce his navigation problems—AI4Sight was born! During her time at Princeton AI4ALL in July 2019, Tia found the resources and mentors she needed to turn her vision into a reality and began developing the app. Currently, it has 800+ downloads on the App Store from 7 different countries—we hope to keep expanding our reach.
