Today, I will be a panelist for the general session, Future Directions of Inclusive Technologies, at the United States Federal Interagency Accessibility Forum.
I will be speaking and answering questions about:
- How can Artificial Intelligence (AI) help people understand what they read? (This relates to my EasyText.AI research.)
- How can AI help people with disabilities live independently?
- How can AI help people with disabilities gain and retain employment?
- How we must not teach AI our biases.
