Abstract

In the past century, the world has experienced unprecedented growth in life expectancy concurrent with a growth in elderly population. Between 2010 and 2050, the number of people aged 65 and older is expected to more than double to exceed 88 million by 2050 in the United States. Ambient intelligence merges ubiquitous computing, embedded sensors, and artificial intelligence to monitor, adjust and respond to the environment of the user. This presentation will explore the potential of ambient intelligence for applications in health care, primarily with a focus on senior health care management.
