Talk on Responsible AI

Come join us on Tuesday, January 22 from 2:30-3:30PM in DC1350 with David Lepofsky, the Chair for Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act Alliance, for an exciting talk on Accessible AI.

Canada’s Parliament is debating enactment of Bill C-81, the proposed Accessible Canada Act. Parliaments and legislatures around the world are increasingly enacting and enforcing disability accessibility legislation that bans disability accessibility barriers not only in the design of buildings, but also in areas like information technology hardware, software and human–computer interfaces.
Ensuring that this technology is all designed for all users, including those with a wide range of  different disabilities, is a pressing legal, moral and business imperative.

Learn more about David and his talk using the following link: https://uwaterloo.ca/computer-science/events/legal-business-moral-duty-design-hardware-software.
