The CIC describes the Active Aging category as "Active Aging promotes the vision that all individuals—regardless of age, socioeconomic status or health—fully engage in life; sustaining relationships, independence, and quality of life while continuing to learn, grow, and contribute to society." To this end, Brian Jones will provide some basic background, share some past projects focused on these areas of independence, social connectedness, wellness, and purpose.
The IPaT Living Labs Seminar introduces students and other attendees to the various research thrusts and the living labs that have been established under the Institute for People and Technology (IPaT) as resources to support or enable recent research efforts of Georgia Tech faculty. Sessions typically involve information sessions, discussion and/or rapid brainstorming around example topics, such as Smart Cities, Smart Health and Health Analytics, Connected Living / Aware Home, Technologies to support enabled/healthy living of older adults and people with disabilities, Augmented Reality, and Whole Home Gaming.
