So you're away at a conference, and your daughter needs help with her essay on American traditions. She walks into the kitchen and asks your Google Home device to get IVOW to share a cultural tradition.
The stories on our Beta IVOW Assistant, demonstrate how we can use a storytelling bot to echo the voices of wisdom within families, communities, and companies. Current AI tools remain limited to dominant languages and cultures, the enriched perspectives on IVOW can become a powerful tool for knowledge sharing, advice and inspiration for the next generation.
You can listen to a collection of our stories now. Just talk to IVOW from your Google Home device:
To begin with, ask your Google Assistant to open IVOW (pronounced I-vow):
Then say, “Hey Google, ask IVOW to share a story from your database.”
or “Hey Google, ask IVOW to share the story of John Smith.”
or “Hey Google, ask IVOW to share a story in a different language.”
or “Hey Google, ask IVOW to share a story about Mexican-American heritage.”
or “Hey Google, ask IVOW to share a story about Artificial Intelligence for Good.”
Excited that IVOW will be 1 of 6 startups today pitching at NYCMedia Lab’s Machines + Media conference at Bloomberg News in New York. Learn more here.
