How Do You Lip Read a Robot? – Recruitment AI has a Disability Problem

Webinar from ILO Global Business and Disability Network

This Zero Project conference session explored the unacknowledged risks to the more than 1.3 billion persons with disabilities triggered by the fast-growing use of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered recruitment tools. Why do leaders of the global ethical AI debate disregard the potential harm to more than 1.3 billion people living today with disabilities and to the hundreds of millions who will become disabled in time? Will the HR cost savings generated by AI technology outweigh the potential damage to the life chances of so many?

The participants were Yves Veulliet (IBM), Susan Scott-Parker (business disability international), and Stefan Trömel (ILO Global Business and Disability Network).
