The Silver Opportunity

Do We Have a Technology Gap or Innovation Gap in Meeting the Future Demands of Older Baby Boomers?

Technology and aging over the last decade has made it to the public agenda. It has been the subject of government, industry and university researchers in specialized journals for many years. It has been the topic of hearings in capitals around the world. It even makes the papers and evening news broadcasts showing caring yet sometimes creepy systems that promise to monitor and manage us in old age.

There must be more to living well in old age than taking blood pressure and remembering to take medication. In this clip produced by AARP and The Atlantic Monthly at a forum on technology and baby boomers I propose that we now need to shift the discussion from technology and aging, to innovations in living. We must first define how we want to live tomorrow – and then engineer the technology to make that vision a reality.
