At Microsoft, Saqib Shaikh leads teams of engineers to blend emerging technologies with natural user experiences to empower people with disabilities to achieve more – and thus to create a more inclusive world for all.
The Seeing AI project enables someone who is blind to hold up their phone, and hear more about the text, people, and objects around them. It has been recognized with a number of awards from industry and government, and has been called “life changing” by users.
Shaikh has spoken at events around the world, from schools and community centers, to sports stadiums and to heads of state.
He holds a BSc in Computer Science (graduating top of his class), and an MSc in Artificial Intelligence.
