White House conference sees technology as future of old age

Joseph Coughlin penned an insightful article on the topic of technology at the White House Conference on Aging. “I’ve been studying the intersection of technology and old age for years. To my mind, the question is not whether we can or will build new and remarkable technologies. The question is how well we will use those technologies as a force multiplier: to better amplify the abilities, strengths, and good intentions of human beings committed to making life better for older adults,” he wrote.
