Yesterday, we hosted a workshop at TRB*—the largest transporation conference in the US if not the world—on "At the Intersection of Disability Justice, Pedestrian Safety, and Health." With roughly ~45 participants, we discussed sidewalk and transit equity, the role of AI in assessment, support mechanisms for non-drivers, and ADA transition plans. Here's a link to our workshop abstract and workshop slides.

I was honored to present our work on Project Sidewalk and BusStopCV and lead a discussion around tensions in using AI for assessment.

This is our third workshop on urban accessibility following:

Here's a small photographic taste of the fun with pictures of me and fellow organizers/presenters: Yochai Eisenberg, Anna Zivarts, Brent Chamberlain, and Keith Christensen.
