Demonstrate potential technology to benefit the lives of the disabled.
We believe that the innovation of technology startups can be used to make a difference in areas of disAbility and increase inclusion in the industry. Tech For disAbility is a new working group set up within the wider Tech London Advocates network to promote London as a global centre for technology and innovation within a number of areas.
Showcase tech startups making a difference
Shine a light on those innovating within the startup industry
Leverage the community
Encourage more problem solving and innovation directed to different abilities
In our London Tech Week event on 21st Sept, we aimed to explore how tech can be used to actively benefit the neurodiversity community, providing a boost to both innovation and inclusion. We balance this with a consideration of how the adoption of technologies, such as machine learning, can amplify biases in favour of neurotypical people and what we can do to not leave people behind.
