AT&T Connectability Challenge
The AT&T NYU Connect Ability Challenge was a three-month global software development competition in 2016 that leveraged mobile and wireless technologies to improve the lives of people living with disabilities.
The initiative strived to help millions of people with disabilities by matching developer talent and client users with disabilities.
For these innovations to be readily accessible to people with disabilities, developers were encouraged to leverage familiar, cost-efficient smart phone, wearable and everyday wireless technologies.
Through in-person and virtual programming, the Connect Ability Challenge facilitated participatory development, embraced user-centered design and rewarded universal design so new innovations can be adopted immediately and by as many people as possible.
