This year at CES 2024 – the annual Consumer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas – the AgeTech Collaborative from AARP showcased Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology in healthcare and personalized care.

The AgeTech Collaborative from AARP presented cutting-edge technology products, services and experiences across industries, including AI and robotics. Innovations on display provide tools and technology to bring meaningful change and help solve the challenges of aging.

"Investing in AgeTech isn't just smart – it's crucial," said AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins. "As global economies evolve with aging demographics, technology becomes our ally in overcoming challenges."

According to the AARP 2024 Tech Trends survey, 69% of adults 50 and older made at least one technology purchase in the last year.

"AARP is harnessing its knowledge to propel AgeTech forward, fostering collaborations across diverse sectors," Jenkins added. "By driving innovation, we're shaping the future of AgeTech and advancing the collective effort to redefine aging through technology."
