A design thinking and hackathon event which aimed to create AI solutions that highlighted accessibility.
Around 1 billion of the world's population is living with some form of disability. Despite this, major digital products and technologies are still not inclusive and accessible to them. Microsoft aimed to change this with its first-ever hackathon and design thinking event for developers, start-ups, and students from different countries.
The design thinking session "added the most value to all participants in terms of coming up with relevant solutions" in all the seven hackathons across Asia Pacific. Microsoft Philanthropies Singapore
