Intelligent Systems for Aging in Place

This keynote reflects on the role that intelligent systems and ambient computing may play in future homes and cities, with a specific emphasis on populations aged 65 and beyond. Leveraging insights from a global study that she recently led, Dr. Daria Loi will contextualize the research domain, overview her ambient computing vision, and discuss implications and opportunities of designing intelligent systems for older adults. Her talk will ultimately advocate for adopting Participatory Design approaches, to ensure that intelligent, ambient technologies are developed with (instead of for) end users.
