Virtual Workshop: “Inclusivity at the Edge”: Policy Design for Digital Technologies
Host: Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech)
When: Wednesday, August 3, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Eastern time
Where: Virtually, on Zoom
This workshop brings together graduate and postgraduate (i.e., doctoral and postdoctoral) researchers along with policy experts, practitioners, and industry partners in the areas of rehabilitation engineering, engineering, or computer science with a focus on accessibility, usability, and other perspective. Using a collaborative design process, the group will identify key social and policy-related problems and solutions to the adoption and use of digital technologies for advancing employment opportunities as well as enhancing independent living outcomes of individuals with disabilities.
Attendees will join virtually through Zoom for two 2.5-hour sessions.
Sessions will involve matching Fellow candidates with policy experts and industry leaders for intensive discussions about the possibilities of next-generation IoT technologies, cloud and edge computing, robotics, and artificial intelligence to create new opportunities for employment, community participation, and independent living outcomes of people with disabilities.
