Aging & Technology
Nov 09 - Peninsula

By 2030, there will be more people over the age of 60 than children under age 10. Technology – such as innovations in robotics, autonomous vehicles, augmented reality, biosensors, wearables and predictive analytics – is available to address the needs of this aging population.  What are the opportunities and challenges in advancing healthy aging?  How can we collectively implement solutions that work and create real impact?

Join us for a dynamic conversation from three luminaries and leaders in the field of aged care and technology.
