AI for Information Accessibility Podcast

AI can be very beneficial to society but if abused it can also be very harmful. The AI for Information Accessibility podcast (AI4IA), therefore, raises a range of issues, including the relationship between AI and law, AI and ethics, AI and media, and the right to knowledge, creativity, and innovation. It is necessary to understand how AI can be made inclusive, enabling the widest cross-section of society. This podcast provides a platform for open discourse involving participants from academia, civil society, the private sector, and government.

The AI4IA podcast series is in association with the Artificial Intelligence for Information Accessibility 2022 Conference on September 28, 2022, which will commemorate the International Day for Universal Access to Information. The AI4IA Conference and the podcast series are also being hosted in collaboration with AI4Society and the Kule Institute for Advanced Studies, both at the University of Alberta; the Centre for New Economic Diplomacy at the Observer Research Foundation in India; and the Broadcasting Commission of Jamaica.
