ADA Live! Autonomous Systems and People with Disabilities
In this episode of ADA Live!
From robots making food deliveries to drones aiding in search and rescue missions to self-driving cars, automation and technology are changing the way we live. According to experts in the field, “automation shifts responsibility from humans and lets intelligent machines take control” (Mumm, H., 2019). This shift in automation has begun to alter the way we live, and its impacts on society are yet to be seen.
With an eye to the future, in May of 2019 Syracuse University started the Autonomous Systems Policy Institute (ASPI) with the goal of keeping technology from outpacing policy in the quickly growing field of autonomous systems and technology.
This episode of ADA Live! features the exciting work of the Autonomous Systems Policy Institute (ASPI), the importance of “human/machine collaboration” and the opportunities and challenges autonomous systems hold for persons with disabilities with guest, Syracuse University Associate Professor Dr. Krista Kennedy and as host, our Burton Blatt Institute colleague Diane Wiener.
