Webinar 23 April: AI, ML and accessibility - trends, opportunities and ethics

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are already used to support accessibility. Research as well as businesses see a great potential, and a lot of interesting innovation is happening as we speak. How can we make sure these technologies benefit inclusion without opening up for bias or privacy issues?

Recorded webinar 23 April 2021

That was the focus of this webinar, where the Buddy project was presented and the potential of AI and ML in the perspective of accessibility was discussed. The distinguished panel contained perspectives from end users, research and AI expertise. The webinar was live captioned and automatically translated to German and Swedish.
