The Full Story


as part of "Project the Future of Wellbeing Hackathon 2022" at the MIT Media Lab (in collaboration with SAMSUNG), My team and I created a story-telling device that utilizes speech-to-text and AI in order to augment the environment around us and help us bridge an age gap between multi-generational households. We have won 1st place for this project.
