THEME

  • Gerontechnology in the Era of Artificial Intelligence

    Since ISG 2020, we have faced unprecedented challenges brought on by the pandemic, and our daily lives have changed inevitably. COVID-19 has accelerated the digital revolution around the world and called for innovations on how we work, live, play and take care of others while practicing social distancing. Artificial intelligence is at the center of this digital transformation, as the World Economic Forum rightly put, “It is a key driver of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.” As population aging proceeds, older adults will make up the largest group of users for many of these emerged and emerging technologies. The conference theme, Gerontechnology in the Era of Artificial Intelligence, emphasizes the potential of artificial intelligence to enhance the quality of life of people in all age groups as they experience aging. Moreover, the issue of digital equity will be brought to attention in the context of global aging and sustainable development.
