Call for collaboration – to go out to disabled people’s organizations/networks
Technology often promises to make life easier, but what will the future look like for disabled people with complex care needs? What about when services are managed and monitored using algorithms, and robotic systems start to replace care workers? What if these tools were made to enable rationing and automation of care services? Alternatively, what if these technologies and services were designed by and for disabled people to promote Independent Living and meet their actual social care needs?
A group at Loughborough University wants to ask these kinds of questions and is looking for disabled technology users to collaborate on starting a research project.
