Richard Caro gave this talk at the Commonwealth Club on feb 5, 2014. Here is the abstract:
Whether it’s hearing, vision, mobility, or mental sharpness, a gradual decline in ability to function at our peak comes to us all. But what if technology could be developed that would put off the day when such decline starts to impact our daily life?
In his talk, Dr. Caro will discuss why this seems both realistic, and imminent. And he will describe an experimental “co-creation community” — designed to accelerate the emergence of these novel products by leveraging the insights, years of accumulated wisdom, and enthusiasm of seniors themselves.
