A world of opportunities
There are many ways to cultivate intelligent experiences for people with disabilities. AI for Accessibility will focus on three areas:
According to the US Office of Disability Employment Policy, the unemployment rate is twice as high for people with disabilities. AI can help people to develop professional skills and influence workplace culture and inclusive hiring.
AI is capable of hearing, seeing and reasoning with increasing accuracy. By making software and devices smarter, and keeping them affordable, people gain the independence to perform daily tasks and personalise tools for their unique needs.
Communication and connection
Equal access to information and opportunity requires communication. Technology can create possibilities for all people, regardless of how they listen, speak or write.
Experience AI in action
