Wearable Sends Chills Whenever The Wearer Hears An AI Voice
A prototype device worn on the ear called Anti AI AI notifies the wearer with a cold touch when it detects a synthetic voice
The R&D department of Australian company DT created a wearable device called Anti AI AI, which is connected to a neural net. The prototype is worn on the ear and notifies the wearer when it detects a synthetic voice by cooling the skin using a thermoelectric plate.
The team developed a circuit board using the tiny Simblee BLE Arduino chip and a custom iOS app that streams audio to a Tensorflow application running a neural net trained on real and synthetic voices. The device creates a noticeable chill near the back of the neck without drawing too much current. This work in progress will be developed further as the team continues to improve their neural net with more synthetic content as it becomes available.
