TheoremOne Taps Joe Devon for Head of Accessibility, With a Mandate to Build AI for Accessibility Services
Devon will have a particular focus on using Machine Learning to solve digital accessibility problems in new ways.
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TheoremOne®, a leader in agile, full-stack innovation, engineering, and design that helps major enterprises achieve strategic digital transformation, today announced the addition of Joe Devon as Head of Accessibility.
Devon is a well-known figure in global accessibility and is a Co-Founder of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). In his role as Head of Accessibility, Devon will use his deep technology consulting experience and network to elevate TheoremOne’s commitment to innovative digital access and inclusion.
TheoremOne has ambitious plans to develop an innovative accessibility practice area, and Devon will play a critical role in its evolution. With rapidly emerging statutory requirements, navigating the Digital Accessibility realm is critical for leaders of the world’s biggest companies. TheoremOne will combine its industry-leading consulting capabilities with AI-powered approaches to solve the actual problems people with disabilities face.
“Machine Learning is inherently connected to accessibility, with much of the seminal work in AI addressing long-standing issues for people with disabilities. Visual recognition, automated speech recognition, and language translation are getting shockingly closer to becoming solved problems, and yet effective products for the end user still do not exist,” said Devon.
In addition to his work for Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), Devon also chairs the GAAD Foundation, frequently publishing thought leadership on accessibility in technology. He is a sought-after speaker and panelist, regularly appearing on stage at data science and AI conferences. Additionally, Devon serves on the advisory board for USC’s IT program and non-profit organizations, using his expertise to drive positive change.
When asked about the new role, Devon said, “I’m excited to join Brady and the team at TheoremOne, an organization that stands for innovation and wants to build what’s coming next. As someone who has dedicated their life to promoting inclusiveness and accessibility, I am eager to drive solutions for an underserved audience. TheoremOne is committed to designing and building products that improve life for individuals, communities, and organizations alike.”
“TheoremOne and the S4Capital family are uniquely positioned to be a pioneer in the digital accessibility ecosystem. I’m excited to have Joe join our team as we continue to develop this important capability internally and for our clients,” said Brady Brim-DeForest, CEO at TheoremOne, and CEO of S4Capital’s Technology Solutions practice. “With the impending disruption brought by the first generation of true Artificial Intelligence, successfully navigating Digital Accessibility will become even more critical for leaders of the world’s most ambitious organizations.”
