Raising the Floor International Exclusively Launch Two Products at AAATE2017

July 12, 2017

We are delighted to announce that Raising the Floor International will release two products at the AAATE2017 Congress that will help to make assistive, digital technologies more accessible.

The Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII) is being created to address the problem of access to technologies. Digital technologies now pervade all aspects of life from education, to employment, to daily living but if people can’t understand, access or use the technologies, they will not be able to participate in the emerging world we are creating.

Three pillars make up the GPII and two of these will be released at the AAATE:

  1. Unified Listing will allow users to find solutions and products internationally that can provide access to information and communication technologies.
  2. DeveloperSpace​ will provide a single point of entry for finding resources to create, test, market and sell accessibility solutions in ways that are easier, faster and with lower costs.

The third, Auto-personalisation, will be demonstrated.

At AAATE2017 Congress, the DeveloperSpace will be used within the Student Innovation Tournament as a source of both challenges to the students and tools to help them in exploring and solving different challenges. There will also be a special session within the Conference’s programme, where the DeveloperSpace will be demonstrated and the benefits for consumers, developers, clinicians, policymakers, and other players in the broader accessibility ecosystem will be shared.

The GPII is making it easier to create and market new solutions, making it easy for each person to find a solution that fits them, and making it easier to use solutions so that anyone will be able to approach any device with a digital interface and have it instantly change into a form they can understand and use.

Don’t miss out on being one of the first to experience the three pillars of GPII. Registration for the Conference is open now – register here today.

Raising the Floor International is a Switzerland based non-profit organization focused on ensuring that everyone can access information and communication technologies. Raising the Floor is leading an international coalition of companies, universities, governments and non-governmental organizations to address this through the construction of the GPII. Cloud4All and Prosperity4All are EC funded project focused on the development of GPII’s three pilars including the Auto-Personalization, Unified Listing and DeveloperSpace.
