Advanced Voice Tech for Older Adults




Over 50% of consumers in the developed world use voice assistants in their everyday life, from calling home from their car, to searching the internet, bringing up their favorite music and ordering products and services. Voice First and AI platforms are poised to transform the way we carry out everyday tasks, interact with loved ones and access what we want or need. For older adults, these low-tech, low-cost technologies not only improve their lives, but allow them to stay independent.

Join us to learn how companies that create products geared to the 50+ demographic have integrated voice into their designs. Our speakers have deep experience in voice technology as well as first-hand knowledge of what works—and doesn’t-- how to incorporate voice into a product and design experiences to match the unique needs of older users.
