Helping the Elderly through Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.
Aging is a global issue since it affects the entire population of the planet globally.
The twentieth century has seen a revolution in longevity with the increase in life expectancy in almost twenty years from 1959 to 1966 and the expectation is that it will extend ten years by 2050. The number of people aged 60 and over will grow from 600 million in 2000 to 2,000 million in 2050.
In the middle of the twentieth century, the percentage of people over 60 years old reached 8% of the world population, while by the middle of the twenty-first century this figure is expected to rise to 21%.
This phenomenon acquires an intensity and a duration that is unprecedented in the history of humanity.
