NASEM Proceedings Explore AI for People with Disabilities and Older Adults

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) have released a brief report, Artificial Intelligence Applications for Older Adults and People with Disabilities: Balancing Safety and Autonomy: Proceedings of a Workshop. The proceedings are from an October 2018 workshop, hosted by the Forum on Aging, Disability, and Independence, which examined the state of the art and knowledge about artificial intelligence (AI). The workshop explored the potential of AI to foster a balance of safety and autonomy for older adults and people with disabilities who strive to live as independently as possible.
