STA Awards Presentation
This has definitely been the majority of my actual time this week. I have a powerpoint mostly finished, and I’m going to practice presenting it shortly after writing this. I’m not really sure it’s worth spoiling on this blog, though. It will be presented soon enough, and I can upload more pictures of the process after that maybe?
STA Award Finalist announcement
Maddy constructed all the elements for this, and just asked my help arranging them. We settled on this layout of Name -> Finalist -> Logo.
Ethics and Fairness in AI (Ken Fleischmann)
Yay, I got to research graphics for an interesting course! We got the request to update a studio backdrop:
Hello, we need to make a couple small updates to the backdrop. Could we replace the images that have been circled in red? We hope to replace the photos with things that focus more on how AI can help and less on the computer/brain aspect.
The question of how AI can help people has evolved rapidly in the time since these graphics were made. I’m personally a big fan of AI art and text generation. My first thought was to use some of my favorite Dall-E 2 art examples from the wiki page.
I was having a hard time finding good screenshots of ChatGPT’s utility, so I took a section of one of my own chats, where I asked it to write code in Java.
I also included a stock photo of radiology, something AI is used for. This was my first draft:
The client actually wanted something more serious and focused on other aspects like agriculture and self-driving cars. I replaced the AI art with another Dall-E of a robot, and the inside of a self-driving car, as well as standardizing the line thickness and brightening up the entire image somewhat.
Still in studio testing/finalizing stages as of writing.
