India Launches AI-Based Job Portal for Persons with Disabilities

The Indian Institute of Technology in Hyderabad (IIT-Hyderabad) has developed an artificial intelligence (AI)-based job platform for people with disabilities (PwDs). The Institute claimed that the platform, Swarajability, is the first of its kind in India. It will offer technical training and job opportunities that are tailored to the user’s skills. The platform will analyse the available information and suggest the required training needed for the jobseeker. For maximum reach, the platform is accessible on both the web and mobile phones.
According to reports, the platform was developed in partnership with private players, and several organisations with different areas of expertise have come together on the project. There are 21 million persons with disabilities in India. Over 70% of them are unemployed/underemployed. The platform is a step towards remedying this. The importance of creating this platform is if the country is to meet its demographic dividend, the most vulnerable, like youth with disabilities, should be skilled and given sustainable opportunities, the platform developers said. Technology can facilitate this and ensure that no one is left behind. The platform supports NGOs, educational institutions, and governments in their efforts to promote diversity and inclusion.
