The use and long-term utilisation of AI-supported assistive systems in vocational rehabilitation can offer great potential to improve the participation of persons with disabilities in working life. A prerequisite is the availability of market-ready intelligent assistive technologies that generate personal benefits for persons with diverse disabilities and can be used by companies with low effort. The diffusion of these technologies can succeed if the assistance potential of AI technologies is explained and AI-supported assistive technologies are developed and introduced in a demand-oriented and participatory way. It is also important that access for persons with disabilities to these technologies is ensured, competencies for their use are promoted, and continuous further development and support for their use are ensured.
