Please complete my research survey at below link


Dear Participant,

As part of my Master of Science in Business Analytics major project, I am conducting research into the area of Exploring the Influence of Bias, Privacy and Ethical Considerations on the Acceptance and Utilization of AI and Machine Learning to achieve better outcomes in Learning, Communication, and Quality of Life for Individuals living with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities in the University of Galway.

I am investigating this because I want to understand if personal bias and privacy concerns prevent carers from using Artificial Intelligence apps on mobile devices to support their family member living with Down Syndrome in different areas of therapy, health management and education.

I am inviting you to participate in this research project because of your membership and participation in the Down Syndrome Community. Accompanying this letter is a short questionnaire that asks a variety of questions about Artificial Intelligence and privacy concerns. 

I am asking you to review the questionnaire and, if you choose to do so, complete it and submit it back to me. It should take you about five minutes to complete. The questionnaire does not require you to give your name or any other information that might identify you.

The survey will be completed via MS Forms and all data will be stored on University of Galway’s OneDrive storage accounts.

Information compiled from the questionnaire will be reported in aggregate form and individuals will remain anonymous. No information you give will be shared with any other individual.

Through your participation I hope to understand how we can tailor new applications to help people living with Down Syndrome to reach their full potential addressing all concerns carers may have.

I hope that the results of this survey will be useful for developing applications, action groups and activities with a view to embracing technology. While I do have the support of Pierangelo Rosati Associate Professor in Digital Business and Society who is my Research Supervisor to engage in this research, it is being conducted by me in a personal capacity.

You do not have to participate in this study if you do not wish to do so. I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this letter.

If you would like to know more about my study before deciding whether to participate, please contact me at [email protected]

Regardless of whether you choose to participate, please let me know if you would like a summary of my survey findings.

To receive a summary, email me at the [email protected].

Yours faithfully,

Al Kennedy
