A product that people can trust and that they can all use, including if they have a (visual, auditory, motor or other) disability. This is important now that our NGI journey goes beyond the Web and mobile applications, to include a flood of connected devices on the outside and inside of our bodies, vehicles, buildings and infrastructure.
