According to Dije, Dwi’s nickname, AiCCESS is an effort to improve the accessibility and quality of education for deaf people. “The aim is to support inclusive campus programs. In addition, this application is for the use of AI and shows that AI is not a human “killing machine”, which if used according to its function can be a tool that can provide decent education,” he explained.

This application, he added, received appreciation from exhibition visitors in Thailand. “We received visits from many audiences, judges and visitors from various countries. Many are curious about the application design and are really waiting for the application to be released soon. There are also those who comment on the UI/UX design of the application, they say that the application design is user friendly for its users. Even, visitors from students from one of the universities in Thailand, they were amazed by the application design and wanted to find out who designed the application because the appearance is attractive and eye-catching,” he explained.

“AiCCESS can also strengthen UB’s commitment to support the 4th and 10th SDGs regarding education and inclusiveness. The hope is that this application can create quality education for all students in Indonesia, including groups that are often ignored. Hopefully we can continue to contribute to improving inclusive education in Indonesia through technological innovation that has an impact on society,” concluded the 2020 batch student.
