What is it like to work with Davar?

“Few humans are as far ahead of the tech community as Davar Ardalan in understanding and making accessible the criticality and value of pairing story, memory, culture, diversity with data/ai projects.”Carrie Jaquith, Global Head of Product Abaxx Technologies

“Thanks Davar Ardalan for inspiring #womeninai and #womenintech, and striving to preserve #culturalai 🙌 Your contributions to our communities are invaluable 🎉”Bhuva Shakti, Chief Ethics & Culture Officer Women in AI

“I had the pleasure of collaborating with Davar on a pilot spatial audio series, where she oversaw the use of ambisonic microphones in the field. I took one of these microphones to the Ecuadorian Amazon, and Davar's expertise and guidance were invaluable. Her deep understanding of spatial audio's potential elevated the final production, creating an immersive and resonant narrative.”Kiliii Yuyan, National Geographic Explorer

“With a background at NPR, National Geographic, and Women in Voice, Davar excels in crafting immersive auditory experiences that merge compelling narratives with cutting-edge technology. Her trailblazing research in spatial audio adds depth and presence, forging a profound connection between listeners and nature. Ardalan's contributions inspire new generations of storytellers, reshaping our engagement with the power of sound.”Cheryl Ottenritter, Ott House Audio

"Davar championed our work, ensuring that the importance of 'Into the Depths' was recognized at every level. Thanks to her strategic guidance, the podcast became a pioneering force in National Geographic's coverage of this complex history. It led to a cover story in the esteemed National Geographic magazine, marking the first time an African-American woman explorer, namely myself, appeared on the cover in its 134 year history."Tara Roberts, 2022 Rolex National Geographic Explorer of the Year

Our AI Guidelines

TulipAI recognizes the profound implications of AI's potential to undermine confidence in media and journalism. Consequently, as part of our R&D work, our commitment to upholding ethical standards in its deployment is unwavering. Our AI principles at TulipAI are straightforward, echoing a transparent purpose and vision. As technology and our grasp of it evolve, we remain receptive to refining these principles.AI Content Ethics at TulipAI:
We prioritize the ethical integrity of content crafted by our AI. With rigorous oversight, we routinely evaluate our methodologies. Such measures not only fortify trust from our users but also preemptively address potential pitfalls stemming from unforeseen AI outcomes.
Diversity: The Cornerstone of AI Development:
The essence of AI hinges on its data and its creators. Acknowledging this, TulipAI champions the inclusion of a multifaceted team spanning diverse origins to the best of our ability. This strategy helps circumvent inadvertent biases in AI narratives while fostering a system that is adaptive, empathetic, and encompassing.
Commitment to Transparency:
It's imperative to clearly denote AI-driven contributions at every interface. This can be achieved either by prominently featuring the TulipAI AI-assisted emblem or appending "AI-assisted content" in Italics to the content's conclusion. Furthermore, we're spearheading an initiative in the next year for audio watermarking to distinctly label AI-generated audio in future endeavors.

At TulipAI, we leverage AI tools to support us in content creation and summarization, and we maintain a fact-checking process for all AI-generated materials.

Commitment to Environment

We are conscious of the environmental ramifications of training large language models (LLMs).
The 2023 research paper "Making AI Less Thirsty" discusses the considerable water footprint associated with AI models.
One significant finding is that training GPT-3 in Microsoft's U.S. data centers could lead to the evaporation of 700,000 liters of clean freshwater.
At TulipAI, our commitment is to reduce the environmental footprint of our offerings as we continue to advance:Our beta app enters dormant state after 5 minutes of inactivity.
We shut down the endpoint serving LLM model when not in use.
