Summary


The second session of the day opened with a panel discussion in which three users with disabilities were invited to share their hopes and fears for a fully connected world. All participants demonstrated that, to varying degrees, IoT devices have already become a staple feature in the day-to-day lives of many people with disabilities. The need to take affordability, interoperability and security into consideration when designing and building new solutions was also clearly expressed.
