The NDIA has released this framework to promote innovation and development of safe and effective artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled assistive technology (AT).  

The framework will assist the NDIS to guide AI-enabled AT market development and support better matching of technologies to a person’s individual needs. The framework will be used to create resources to help compare the risks and benefits of emerging technologies. 

It can also be used by:  

  • people with disability and their communities to help decide if AI-enabled AT is right for them 
  • developers and researchers as they design, create and evaluate technology for people with disability 
  • funding bodies to support assessment of research funding applications. 

The CSIRO is now drafting a roadmap to provide a pathway for the implementation and adoption of the framework.
