Abstract
We live in a fast ageing society. The increasing availability of IoT (Internet of Things) technologies is disrupting existing service and business models and the “active and healthy ageing” market will be no different. The maturity achieved by current technology, is enabling a brand new set of services specifically targeted to seniors, leveraging on features such as active healthcare monitoring, indoor location, low-power wireless transmission, machine learning and big data analytics. The opportunities are significant but so are threats and challenges, for instance in terms of privacy and security, as well as in terms of real usability. The talk will provide an overview of technologies and it will provide a critical view over the potential they have within the fast evolving “senior economy”, framing such a fast-expanding technology portfolio in the context of forthcoming legal framework.
