Body:

Over 50% of consumers in the developed world use voice assistants in their everyday life, from calling home from their car, to searching the internet, bringing up their favorite music and ordering products and services. Voice First and AI platforms are poised to transform the way we carry out everyday tasks, interact with loved ones and access what we want or need. For older adults, these low-tech, low-cost technologies not only improve their lives, but allow them to stay independent.

Join Aging 2.0 to learn how companies that create products geared to the 50+ demographic have integrated voice into their designs. The speakers have deep experience in voice technology as well as first-hand knowledge of what works—and doesn’t-- how to incorporate voice into a product and design experiences to match the unique needs of older users. Janet Baker from M.I.T.’s Media Lab and Co-founder of Dragon Systems will kick off the conversation with an overview of voice technology.

Welcome Remarks by Robin Lipson, Chief of Staff for the Executive Office of Elder Affairs

Parking

Parking is available in several public parking garages near Kendall Square (e.g. Standard Parking, Kendall Square Parking, Cambridge Center East Garage, Cambridgeside Galleria mall garages) as well as metered street parking. Cars can stop on 3rd Street or Broad Canal Way to load and unload passengers. If possible though, it is much easier to get to CIC Cambridge via public transportation - we are steps away from the Kendall Square station on the red line.
