Generative AI, Disability and Accessibility
Organised by: Policy Connect ATech Policy Lab and Tech London Advocates Tech For Disability, hosted by Plexal
This roundtable will explore how Generative AI - such as ChatGPT, Copilot and Bard - will impact or benefit disabled people. And how can disabled people be involved in developing the new norms, regulations and policies that will shape how tools will use these technologies responsibly? The roundtable will bring together experts from the tech and disability sectors to address this rapidly moving agenda; we will invite a wider group of participants to attend and contribute questions for discussion.

London Tech Advocates Tech For Disability in partnership with the ATech Policy Lab
Tech For Disability is a working group of Tech London Advocates, aiming to bridge the disabled community and the tech industry so tech is made more inclusive as well as the industry itself. We convene Inclusive Conversations with conversation starters to generate discussions and content for sharing across our network.
Policy Connect is a cross-party think tank. We specialise in supporting parliamentary groups, forums and commissions, delivering impactful policy research and event programmes and bringing together parliamentarians and government in collaboration with academia, business and civil society to help shape public policy in Westminster and Whitehall, so as to improve people’s lives.
Our work focuses on five key policy areas, which are: Education & Skills; Industry, Technology & Innovation; Sustainability; Health; and Assistive & Accessible Technology and Accessible Transport.
The ATech Policy Lab is a new venture in Assistive and Accessible Technology from Policy Connect, with supporting partners Bournemouth University and the Ace Centre. The Lab brings together stakeholders from the tech and disability sectors with policymakers to design evidence-based policy that makes technology enabling for everyone.
