Program Description

You’ve returned home from a surgery and are confined to a chair for most of the day. Now, from your smart phone or computer, you can see the visitor at your door and unlock it. You can turn on your lights, adjust your thermostat, and send messages to your caregiver or doctor without getting up.

From smart thermostats and light bulbs to bed sensors, robots, and self-driving cars, technology has the potential to help us age in place. But who will install the technology and help us use it? Who will keep it working? How can we separate the practical from the hype?

Bring your ideas, concerns, and experiences to this discussion of the future of technology in our homes.
