University of Toronto: Chancellor's Reception & Presentation

Tuesday, Nov 28, 2017

Time: 7:00pm - 9:30pm

The Honourable Michael H. Wilson, Chancellor, University of Toronto, cordially invites you to a thought-provoking presentation on
Disrupting the Aging Landscape, From Smart Homes to Robots

Professor Alex Mihailidis, Department of Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy, Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering, University of Toronto

Our population is getting older and we need better approaches to providing care. Despite significant advances in technologies for wellness in older adults, most prototypes have not made it to market. Many are simply not user friendly or efficient enough for aging adults to operate. To ensure the usefulness of future technologies, we need new ways of thinking about their design. We need disruptive technologies. Professor Mihailidis will explain the concept and how we can apply it to the next generation of technologies for older adults.

Professors Mihailidis's presentation is part of an ongoing series of compelling lectures for alumni, hosted in cities around the world. U of T Where You Are brings the University right into your community. Stay informed, inspired and connected, because together we are boundless.
