How Can Virtual Assistants and AI-Based Smartphone Apps Help Post-Secondary Students with Disabilities Succeed in their Studies?

Status: Ongoing Projects
Year: 2020-2021

The goal is to explore the features and functions of AI-based virtual assistants and smartphone apps that can help post-secondary students with disabilities succeed in their academic work. To achieve this goal we will do an extensive literature search and bring together stakeholders from various sectors by creating a 15-member Advisory Board. Based on this information we will create an accessible questionnaire about the use of AI-based virtual assistants and smartphone apps to get the invaluable student perspective.

The Montréal Centre for Higher Learning in Artificial Intelligence (PIA) funded this project.
