“Technology will provide seniors limitless opportunities to stay healthy, connected, safe and active,” said Robin Raskin, founder, Living in Digital Times. “The purchasing power of this growing population will be more keenly felt in the technology sphere than any other industry.”
Silvers Summit conference is guaranteed to be standing room only. Vinton Cerf, Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist, and known to many as “the father of the Internet,” will kick off the Summit and delve into how the Internet has evolved and matured alongside this generation of game changers.
“The generation that invented the Internet now controls 70 percent of the country’s wealth,” said Jill Gilbert, co-producer of Silvers Summit. “It is inevitable that spending from this growing population will be unprecedented, and there’s no doubt the technology space will be leading the pack.”
A lively discussion on touch, voice and gesture-enabled innovation will provide a deep dive on how tech behemoths, like Microsoft, and emerging companies, like Dragon, Nuance and Oblong, are going full-throttle to help simplify our technology interactions.
Later in the day, attendees will hear directly from Justin Rattner, CTO of Intel, on his pivotal role in transforming assistive technology with world-famous physicist and Lou Gehrig’s disease survivor Stephen Hawking, and how their collaboration has altered thousands of seniors’ lives.
