In October 2019, Microsoft organized its first-ever AI for Accessibility Hackathon in Asia Pacific, bringing together over 400 participants in eight countries to conceptualize and prototype AI solutions that can transform the daily life, employment and communication of people with disabilities. Our partners and customers worked alongside nonprofits to tackle 23 problem statements, identifying opportunities to use AI to build a more inclusive society.
