  • 1. National and Global Public Inclusive Infrastructures Gregg Vanderheiden Ph.D. Trace R&D Center University of Wisconsin- Madison Workshop at ONCE 2010-10-05
  • 2. <ul><li>Everything should be made as simple as possible – but no simpler </li></ul><ul><li>Albert Einstein </li></ul>- I wish that we had a simple problem to present - and a simple solution. We don’t. It isn’t. - But we think we CAN create a solution that is simple to use rs, pub lic, and governme nt / policy – but, like a car, it will be simple only if you don’t look under the hood.
  • 3. Key Problems Looming - Many causes <ul><li>Internet will no longer be optional – yet many can not access or use it </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Essential for participation in education, employment, commerce, civics, health and safety </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Access solutions don’t exist for everyone </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Not available for some types, degrees & combinations of disability, or functional limitation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Current solutions won’t work for all of the new technologies emerging </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cloud computing, Web 2.0, 1 million authors of next gen apps </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Access solutions are too complex </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Not just for many users, but also public access points, companies, and even governments </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Fear of the internet combined with complexity stops many </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fear of what happens to you / comes to you - and no understanding of how to prevent it. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Access solutions are hard to find & find out about </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Many do not know that any solutions exist – so it doesn’t occur to them to even search for one </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Many can’t afford the high cost of access solutions they need </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Again, not just users. Public access points and even governments can’t afford the cost for all </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In addition people need access to all the computers they encounter , at work, home, community, etc. Not just one that is set up for them somewhere. </li></ul>
  • 4. Underlying Problems / Needs (Things that contribute to the primary problems/needs) <ul><li>Limited market/sales for AT Vendors </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Contributes to cost – and is vicious cost/sales circle </li></ul></ul><ul><li>High cost for new innovators to get into the market – get to market </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Contributes to limited new products , - limited innovation, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Part of reason solutions don’t exist for many disability types </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Limited support for research and development in this area </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Limits involvement of some of our best researchers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keeps students (and their faculty) from entering this field </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Limited communities of practice - (need for capacity and community building) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Researcher (see above), Service Delivery personnel, Awareness People, Mavens, Policy People </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Limited continuity of funding </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Continuity is a severe problem: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Funding comes and goes causing turnover. Underfunding causes burnout. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Prevents depth from developing. Causes gains and expertise to be lost. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  • 5. 4 part Strategy <ul><ul><li>Foster innovation in accessibility and expand the market for innovative vendors </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Maximize the portion of accessibility that can be addressed through ordinary market mechanisms -- and minimize the portion that must be served through government or philanthropic intervention. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Maximize the accessibility of mainstream products. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>And figure out how to provide basic access for those that regular market forces still cannot reach , even with the above. </li></ul></ul>
  • 6. Situation and Approach Addressed by Assistive Technologies Addressed by Universal Design (built-in) Cannot fill the gap with government funded or philanthropic access efforts. Too large Need to grow the commercial AT and Built-in Access to address as much as possible using market mechanisms - and reserve government/philanthropic intervention for 
only those that market forces cannot address
  • 7. National and Global Public Inclusive Infrastructures
  • 8. Three Key Goals <ul><li>Simplify </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To users - Public Access Points - Companies - Gov </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Provide solutions for all (all types of disabilities, literacy, & aging) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>One Size does NOT fit all ---- </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Provide solutions for emerging technologies </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Technology is getting away from us </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Need to empower and facilitate developers of all types </li></ul></ul>
  • 9. <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What if… </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  • 10. We had Auto-Personalization <ul><li>Interfaces that automatically change into a form that users can understand and use </li></ul><ul><li>Content that automatically comes, or is changed into, a form that people can understand and use </li></ul>
  • 11. <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What if… </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  • 12. What if… <ul><li>An elder – with any set of abilities or limitations </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Could quickly and easily determine what would help them - and then to store that information safely for future use. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Then use those stored preferences to invoke the access features, technologies and services they need - anywhere on any device they need to use </li></ul></ul>
  • 13. What if… <ul><li>We could make it so that when anyone approached a computer or other device… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>… . the device would automatically change to something that would work for them </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Something that was simple </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Something that was familiar </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>For example </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If an older person wanted to be able to communicate with children and with nieces and nephews </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Email </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Chat </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Picture sharing…. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  • 14. <ul><li>Instead of these three simple activities </li></ul><ul><li> (email, chat, picture sharing) </li></ul><ul><li> looking like …. </li></ul>
  • 15.
  • 16.
  • 17. <ul><li>Instead what if …. </li></ul><ul><li>Email </li></ul><ul><li>Chat (text, voice and video) </li></ul><ul><li>Picture sharing </li></ul><ul><li>could look like this…. </li></ul>
  • 18.
  • 19.
  • 20. <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What if…….. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  • 21. What if <ul><li>Countries that don’t have AT, or only have a couple types </li></ul><ul><li>Could localize a set of free and commercial AT and make it available in their language to all people in their country </li></ul><ul><ul><li>And it would update along with the full set – to continue to work with new IT that is constantly being released </li></ul></ul>
  • 22. What if … <ul><li>In the future </li></ul><ul><ul><li>People just wear a ring. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>And when they walk or roll up to a device, they just touch the ring to the device and it changes into a form they can use. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For an elder – it might make it simpler and with larger text </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Any computer </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Any phone </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Their thermostat </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Their oven </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Their clothes washer </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The TV control in the hotel </li></ul></ul></ul>
  • 23. Three Key Goals of NPIIs <ul><li>Simplify </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To users - Public Access Points - Companies - Gov </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Provide solutions for all </li></ul><ul><ul><li>One Size does NOT fit all </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Provide solutions for emerging technologies </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Technology is getting away from us </li></ul></ul>
  • 24. The NPII (GPII) Concept <ul><ul><li>Building a disability, technology and platform independent ‘inclusive infrastructure’ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To grow all types of access (BI, AT, CS, AOD) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To spur innovation (new solutions) (Idea-to-market) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To increase markets and lower costs (More solutions – more served) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To address the problems of complexity (Simpler for all ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To provide access to emerging cloud technologies (Future proof) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To create an internationally scalable base that facilitates the creation of affordable solutions for all - everywhere (Outreach) </li></ul></ul>
  • 25. Key Components - <ul><li>Grouped by 3 key goals - “Three legs of a stool” </li></ul><ul><li>A way for people to determine what would help them - and then to store that information safely for future use. </li></ul><ul><li>A way to use their stored preferences (and permissions) to invoke the access features, technologies and services they need </li></ul><ul><li>Tools and infrastructure to allow diverse developers and vendors to create new solutions - and easily and cost effectively move them to market and availability to users who need them. </li></ul>
  • 26. 1) A way for people to determine what would help them - and then to store that information safely for future use. <ul><li>There is a Fix for that </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Awareness progthem – and where to start looking.ram so that everyone knows that there are things that can make ICT easier for </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Extended Usability Wizard </li></ul><ul><ul><li>On-line evaluation tool that allows people to find out how what types of things would make ICT easier for them to use. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Private Preference & Permission System </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ability to securely and privately store their preferences so they can uses them later to shop and to change things to work for them. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Matchmaker </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To find everything that matches a person's needs & preferences. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Safe Source </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Open marketplace: all that is safe to download and try. </li></ul></ul>
  • 27. 2) A way to use their stored preferences to invoke the access features, technologies and services they need - anywhere on any device they need to use. <ul><li>Private Preference & Permission Server (see also above) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Also provides users with the ability to privately and anonymously use their preferences and settings anywhere. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Unified AnyWhere Delivery System </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Infrastructure for delivering any combination of settings and AT (commercial and public)  -- anywhere, anytime, any device. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Auto-Personalization Services </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Automatically personalizes the user interface on devices and adapts content based on user preferences and needs. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Caption & Description Finder </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Finds captions, descriptions, or other supplemental information for video or images if they exist anywhere. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Assistance On Demand </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Infrastructure to build and deliver automated and human Assistance on Demand services </li></ul></ul>
  • 28.
  • 29. 3) Tools and infrastructure to allow diverse developers and vendors to create new solutions - and easily and cost effectively move them to market and availability to users who need them. <ul><li>  Tool Kit & Parts Store & Development environment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Components to facilitate others in building access solutions and services. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Built in, Platform, Network Services (computer, and human) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Assistance on Demand Infrastructure (see above) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Infrastructure also makes it easy for vendors to create and offer new automated and human services on demand </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Safe Source/Marketplace (see above) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A marketplace that makes it easy for users to find all that is available, would also make it easy for new developers to get their products seen and disseminated to users. </li></ul></ul>
  • 30. Summary <ul><li>Where tech is going – many people with disabilities and aging can’t currently follow </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Yet access to BROADBAND is rapidly becoming critical to participation </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Government can’t currently afford to develop all solutions and provide access to all </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>- And Private Sector can only (afford to) reach 15% with current approach </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>NEED A PARADIGM SHIFT </li></ul><ul><li>Need to find ways that government can invest a relatively small amount that will facilitate private sector solutions </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Infrastructure (Develop and op) - to lower costs, increase competition & innovation, 
 and enable new approaches (that are more efficient, simpler, and address more disabilities) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Awareness - to grow the market, lower costs, reach more people </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Tools - to lower bar for new researchers, innovators, and vendors; to increase interoperability </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Research Support - to create a community of practice; to allow sustained effort or researchers to make careers in this area </li></ul></ul></ul>
  • 31. Opportunity <ul><li>We have an unprecedented opportunity to change accessibility in very fundamental ways </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>make it cost less to develop and deploy </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>and reach more people (we currently get to 15% or so)         </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>and serve disabilities and aging groups we don't now   </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>We also have a chance to build access that will work with the new technologies that are coming (that won't work with many of our current access strategies)    </li></ul><ul><li>Finally, we have the opportunity to build something that can be replicated locally in other countries </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>countries that don't have good access technologies or infrastructure </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>allowing them to create their own full range of access solutions– by localizing solutions from an NPII and delivering them via their own NPII. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
