In this event from The TLA Tech For disAbility working group, we aim to explore how tech can be used to actively benefit the neurodiversity community, providing a boost to both innovation and inclusion. We balance this with a consideration of how the adoption of technologies, such as machine learning, can amplify biases in favour of neurotypical people, and what we can do to not leave people behind.

The panel will discuss the challenges and solutions posed by technology for neurodiverse people - for example biometrics, algorithmic decision making, recruitment, life management, therapy and more. They will share real-life examples, experiences and ideas on some of the problems tech can solve.
