I am a Bangladeshi Frontend Web Developer and soon-to-be Masters student at Queen’s University in Canada. I love web technology and learning new things. and I wish to help create an accessible web for everyone.
In research I am facsinated by AI but am very skeptical of usage of technology without understanding its ethical ramifications. I wish to delve into the ethics of AI and help create a sustainable ecosystem of accessible knowledge on the risks of using AI in our systems.

It is comprised of an input where a user can type, and a dropdown menu with suggestions that the user can select. Depending on the use case, there may be some extra caveats. Some components will autofill the user's response based on the suggests, some will require that the user select something, some will fire a network request and so on."

It presents itself as a circle that appears at the point of a click and then enlarges and fades away.
