Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) can have both benefits (improved healthcare, AI-powered assistive technology, etc.) and negative consequences (perpetuation of discrimination, inaccessible AI devices and services, etc.) for persons with disabilities.

It is important to ensure that the development and application of AI emphasizes inclusion, accessibility and attention to the unique needs of persons with disabilities.

On 30 November 2021, 115 civil society organisations, including the BDF, launched a collective statement to call for a European regulation on artificial intelligence that puts fundamental rights first.
