Pros and Cons of Artificial Intelligence in Accessibility

Event Details

Date: 4 December 2023
Time: 12:00PM to 1:30PM


Hosted by Access Advisors



Artificial Intelligence (AI) and large language models are currently hot topics almost everywhere you turn. If you haven’t tried an AI tool directly, then you probably know someone who has or maybe you’ve even used AI supported systems without even knowing it. The benefits, risks and biases AI may introduce into our lives are often hotly debated. For people with access needs, the benefits and concerns are just as real, if not more so. 

So, for International Day of People With Disabilities, our MD Dr Chandra Harrison will lead a discussion about the pros and cos of AI in the accessibility space with a group of friends from around Aotearoa. We will discuss some fabulous assistive tools supported by AI, the need for data governance, and the need for disability communities involvement. There will be time to ask questions and add to the discussion. 

This is an online webinar and you can register on the event Humanitix page. The webinar will be caption and NZSL interpreters will be online. As a small company we are asking for $20 to help cover costs of captioners and interpreters. A recording will be made available for all those who register to attend the event.
