Artificial intelligence has the potential to support the professional participation of people with disabilities. Good approaches (e.g. research projects) and examples (e.g. technologies) already exist. At the same time, artificial intelligence technologies can also pose risks for people with disabilities, for example, if occupational activities of people with disabilities are increasingly taken over by intelligent systems or if they are not barrier-free.
The impact of artificial intelligence on the professional participation of people with disabilities depends on how the development, introduction and framework conditions for the long-term use of artificial intelligence technologies by people with disabilities are designed. Under the heading of digital transformation, we focus in the KI.ASSIST project on transformation or change processes that help people with disabilities to use AI-based assistance systems in the practice of vocational rehabilitation and in companies in order to obtain better opportunities on the general labor market.
On this page you will find findings from the KI.ASSIST project about how change processes can be designed so that people with disabilities can benefit from the opportunities and potential of artificial intelligence in practice.
