#DefyDementia: Colliding Technologies & Precision Aging

Mar 11, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

The world is aging faster now than ever before, and as we age the risk of dementia is growing. Fortunately, technology is also rapidly advancing, and holds tremendous promise for the prevention, detection, treatment, and care of dementia. This panel will discuss the various types of technologies that can help all older adults live their best lives: AI, VR/AR/XR, robotics, digital twins, artificial humans, predictive neuroscience. How will technologies collide for optimal impact? How can we ensure solutions are accessible? and How can we ensure older people guide development of those solutions?
