AbilityNet's Head of Digital Inclusion Robin Christopherson is a speaker and an expert panelist at the Business Disability Forum (BDF) Technology Taskforce event at KPMG, Canary Wharf tomorrow (Tues 27 Feb). Anyone familiar with Robin’s recent presentations across the UK and Europe will not be surprised to hear that he’ll be talking about the rapid rise of those ever-more-intelligent smartspeakers, such as the Amazon Echo, Google Home and Apple’s new HomePod. Millions of these devices have now been sold around the world and Robin will be explaining the impact they will have for people with an impairment or disability.
The event promises to be one of the best BDF Tech Taskforce line-ups yet. Other highlights include a speaker from the BBC talking about Autism from both a personal and professional perspective, as well as an IBM expert on their on-going development of Watson, their awesome Artificial Intelligence platform.
