The interaction with new types of stakeholders is posing new challenges, especially in terms of quality, accuracy, privacy, ownership, and reputation. What are the options for the way forward?

Chair: Arun Menon

Associations and Special Interest Groups:

What are the expectations and concerns of the current generation relating to later life and old age?

What are people globally doing in preparation to later life and how will technology improve old age?

Why is there generally a negative perception towards old people and what are the steps that can be taken to eradicate 'ageism'?
