Advancements in enabling ICTs such as AI, IoT, AR/VR, BMI/BCI allow or accelerate the development of emerging assistive technology, benefiting persons with functional limitations, including persons with disabilities and the aging population. The importance of assistive technology, including ICTs, is recognized by the Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) as a tool of enabling participation  of persons with functional limitations in all aspects of life.

This WIPO session at the ITU World Summit on Information Society on April 27 from 3-4pm CEST will explore trends and the relationship between assistive technology, inclusive/universal design and accessibility features of mainstream products, and the convergence of assistive technology with consumer electronic goods.
