Panel discussion: what does the future hold for assistive technology?

Join us to hear experts in assistive technology (AT) discuss how innovation and cooperation will change the future of assistive technology. What can we expect in the coming years? How do AT developers keep the balance between the possibilities offered by miraculous, high-tech interventions and the everyday lives of (elderly) visually impaired people?

In the panel we will address questions like: how are advances in technology, artificial intelligence, robotics and nano technology helping the visually impaired? How are devices like smartphones and tablets transforming assistive technology? And what do you do, as AT developers, to keep up?

How can AT be better integrated into the everyday lives of (elderly) visually impaired people to support independence? And as AT developers, what dream project would you like to start tomorrow and who or what do you need to do so? Let’s share ideas!
