Thanks to technology, people with disabilities are able to travel, communicate and do day to day tasks with ease. And everyday, we hear of a new development that will make the community even more independent.
Recently, tech giant Google announced plans to use artificial intelligence (AI) to understand the speech and communication patterns of people with certain disabilities through a new project which is going to act more or less like a voice assistant. Google points out that if friends and family members of a speech impaired person can understand what is being communicated, then AI definitely can. That’s sound logic.
The new AI technology is going to likely to benefit millions of people from across the world. To get detailed insight, Google is partnering with medical institutions to see how this can be implemented. In fact, It has roped in field experts, including those with speech impairments, to understand how well AI can be put to use.
