Human longevity potential colliding with our adoption and use of AI, automation and other technologies is collectively disrupting how we live, work, learn, and play. In this session at the Cambridge Senior Center, join MIT AgeLab researchers for a discussion exploring our current understanding of the evolution of the longevity economy. They will share key insights from existing projects focused on topics like the adoption of smart technologies for aging-in-place, research with the ‘oldest old’ of older adults and family caregivers, and use of an age empathy suit for education and learning. Learn from MIT-driven insight to maximize your 100 years of life. Light refreshments will be provided.

The MIT AgeLab was started in 1999 by our Founder and Director, Dr. Joe Coughlin. We are a multidisciplinary research program that works with business, government, and non-profit organizations to improve the quality of life of older people and those who care for them. Our research covers home logistics and services, transportation and livable communities, caregiving and wellbeing, retirement and longevity planning and more. Cross-cutting all of our research is an interest in understanding and elevating the resources that can help people live longer, better.
