Greater innovations for broader horizons

Braille mechanisms have come to be recognised as the face of assistive technologies. But did you know they’re only one small segment of all the innovations that are enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities?

With new discoveries being made everyday, and IT advancing faster than ever before, now is the opportune time to leverage the potential of technology to create a fairer, more inclusive world.

Explore a new realm of inclusive tech

In this Monash Tech Talks event, we’ve invited a panel of specialists to share with you:

  • insights into the modern-day needs of people living with disabilities
  • the current and emerging scope of assistive technologies
  • innovative project examples, such as 3D-printed models incorporating conversational agents
  • informed predictions of where inclusive technology is expected to head in the future.
