Today, the world seems enamoured by the possibilities of
Artificial Intelligence. As of now, this largely amounts to powerful, yet
predictable and widely understood algorithms for search and pattern
recognition, that inspired the era of Data Science and Machine Learning.
While the effects of these techniques are undoubtedly great and in many use
cases their potential has yet to be unlocked, their capabilities are far
from human cognition:
Using public transport can be a challenge. In case of disruptions,
loudspeaker announcements are the critical source of information –
but they can be hard to understand, even for native speakers. English
translations aren’t always provided, except in bigger cities. Matters get
even worse for handicapped or elderly people, because information about
accessibility on the alternative routes is usually not available at all.
