Yes, Even Older Americans Are in the “Race to 5G!”

  • 2168 Rayburn House Office Building (map)

With age comes wisdom and, for some older Americans, aging also brings declining health and constrains on independence. Innovative, connected technologies provide the opportunity to change all this, and improve their quality of life.

Project GOAL conducted a national survey of the older adult community to better understand the expectations for connected technologies during the aging process. Independent living, home and energy management, evolving autonomous vehicles, wearable tech and voice activated devices all offer opportunity for older adults.

Now, the question is: how far in the future will this all become a reality?

Please join Project GOAL to learn about the survey results and engage with a panel of speakers who will highlight some of the innovative products and services that are poised to improve our later years.
