New AI-Powered AR Glasses Could Improve Conversations

Stanford University student teams ChatGPT artificial intelligence with augmented reality for real-time suggestions

A 22-year-old Stanford University student named Bryan Chiang has teamed up with friends to develop software which the group calls RizzGPT. According to Chiang, RizzGPT software uses the popular chatbot ChatGPT to generate human-like conversations from user prompts.

The device, which is still an early prototype, comes armed with an AR eyepiece and a laptop. And users might at first, sound a bit awkward wearing a piece of headgear that makes them look like a crazy scientist.

“RizzGPT basically uses AI to provide you charisma on demand, and so it listens to your current ongoing conversation, and it tells you exactly what to say next,” Chiang told Reuters.

The Stanford student used an open-source AR monocle designed by experiential learning platform Brilliant Labs. It has a camera, microphone and internal projector screen that displays words.

Chiang and his friends programmed RizzGPT to listen to conversations, convert them into text and send them to ChatGPT over Wi-Fi to generate a response.

A passion turned experiment

The 22-year-old was quick to point out that his invention is still in the early stages of development. He’s still working on fixing bugs that can make the text difficult to read, including a 5-second delay that can make a user’s responses feel a bit unnatural.

However, Chiang went on to say that he is more interested in experimenting with new technology rather than commercialising his invention. “It’s mostly like a passion, a personal kind of project. And the goal here is not to kind of immediately commercialise it into a product, but just to show people what the future might look like,” Chiang explained.

Chiang adds that RizzGPT was not invented to replace actual conversations but to show people new ways of interacting with a rapidly advancing technology.

“It’s really meant to just inspire you, not to tell you exactly what to say. I think in that role it could be incredibly helpful for people who struggle with social anxiety and have difficulties, you know, talking to others,” Chiang concluded.
