AI and the host of innovative emerging technologies included under this umbrella are one of the most popular and many times controversial topics of discussion when considering information communication technologies (ICTs) and their potential for sustainable development.
Today we are faced not just with the record pace with which new technologies emerge, but also with the exponentially growing demand for accessibility by people with disabilities or impairments.
This workshop will take a look at the ways in which AI can be put to work to maximize their benefits, especially in improving connectivity and accessibility.
The workshop is co-organised by ICC BASIS, the Association for Accessibility and Equality (Kenya) and the Latin American Internet Association (Uruguay).
The thirteenth Annual Meeting of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) will be hosted by the Government of France at the headquarters of UNESCO in Paris from 12 to 14 November 2018.
