Mar 28, 2023 | 2:15 PM - 3:30 PM


The road to work remains fraught with difficulties for people with disabilities. If left unchecked, AI could further reduce opportunities to work for example through non-accessible innovations or biased algorithms. At the same time AI can be part of the solution, removing some of the barriers to employment faced by people with disabilities, notably through AI-powered assistive devices, as well as AI-backed solutions improving the accessibility of mainstream systems (e.g. job boards) . In this session, experts on accessibility for people with disabilities, AI innovators and policy makers will discuss how to make the best of AI to help people with disabilities access the labour market.
