AI is allowing us to expand our perceptions of what we once thought was possible. Thomas Panek, a blind man, and CEO of Guiding Eyes for the Blind,  recently completed a solo 5-kilometer run. Panek officially partnered with Google to create an app that lets him run without the help of humans or guide dogs. His app is available on a standard Android phone using its camera to detect the line and sends audio prompts via the headphones to direct the runner and keep them on track. As we continue to harness the power and capabilities of AI, there is no telling what we can accomplish next.
