Assistive technology event at Town Hall highlights use of AI in health and social care

The Council hosted an event at Hackney Town Hall demonstrating some of the most advanced products – developed using artificial intelligence (AI) – that can be used to transform how adult social care and health services are delivered in the future.

The event highlighted the latest innovative products on the market, such as self-pouring kettles, glasses that reads text and recognises faces for people who are blind and an app for children and people with disabilities that allows them to communicate and control their own environment in which they live, study or work.

The products are designed to help increase people’s independence and safety in their own homes, especially when they need care.
