Being informed about the accessibility of neighborhoods, cities, and regions can help persons with disabilities in making travel and daily decisions. This information can also be useful and a pushing factor for supportive public policies. While accessibility mapping initiatives, such as Wheelmap.org, have enjoyed tremendous success and scale, they are still far from exhaustive, and their coverage contains biases stemming from volunteer practices. With the aid of the framework of causal statistics, we suggest approaches to adjust for these biases, with the end goal of providing helpful approximations of overall accessibility in different European geographical regions.

Forschungsthema im Fokus

Du siehst Eisenbahnschienen. Die vielen verschiedenen Abzweigungen symbolisieren die Entscheidungsmöglichkeiten von Künstlicher Intelligenz in der Gesellschaft. Manche gehen nach oben, unten, rechts. Manche enden auch in Sackgassen. Englisch: You see railway tracks. The many different branches symbolise the decision-making possibilities of artificial intelligence and society. Some go up, down, to the right. Some also end in dead ends.
