As cited by many tech-savvy CIOs, there are endless ways in which technology can help people living with disabilities (PLWD) to gain more independent access to leisure, learning, and employment. Today, we are already witnessing people living with disabilities augmenting the use of computers to hear, see and communicate with great accuracy. For instance, the late Stephen Hawking used a series of different devices to talk and write culminating in a computer-based communication system developed in 1997. The computer system designed by Intel used an advanced form of AI to analyze Hawking’s “cheek twitches” and combined that information with predictive analytics to help him express appropriate words. As ages passed, devices as such and more have been developed to give tangible benefits to disabled people. To further invigorate the market, Fran Killoway established Frasil to commercialize the world’s first intelligent Humanoid designed to aid people with disabilities in finding their voice and engaging them with the environment around them.
