Technology supporting accessibility: Intel and OmniBridge

How do we make communication accessible for every kind of person? Lama Nachman, Director of Intel’s Human & AI Research Lab, has dedicated decades to bridging the technological gap between those with and without disabilities. She worked alongside Stephen Hawking to create the Assistive Context-Aware Toolkit (ACAT) which enabled him to communicate and do his work more effectively even with limited mobility due to ALS. Also making a difference at Intel is Adam Munder, co-founder of OmniBridge, a software platform that allows deaf individuals to communicate with the hearing population in real-time. Providing 24/7 access to fast, affordable ASL translation, OmniBridge is ideal for a wide range of settings and when interpreters are unavailable. In supporting Adam and Lama’s work, Intel is dedicated to furthering technologies that amplify human potential and create more equity in the world.
