People are living longer and longer thanks to daily advances in healthcare technology. As a nation, we are approaching a historic first: by the year 2034 it is predicted that there will be more people over 65 years of age than people under 18 years of age. It’s a great development, but it requires change, and entrepreneurs are the perfect people to lead the charge with the help of AI technology.
Here is a peek into that how AI will take on Future Aging.
Develop age-appropriate wearables
It is estimated that the number of connected wearable devices around the world will increase to over 1.1 billion by 2022. Focus on more passive, unobtrusive and age-appropriate wearables. Conduct ageing population studies and surveys. What are their worries and what makes them anxious as far as monitoring devices are concerned? Render the apps as easy to use as possible.
Spearhead advances in anti-aging
Start with your sleep. The sleep / wake cycle is regulated by the circadian network. Aging has a profound effect on this process, leading to poor sleep, which can lead to negative health and aging effects across many regions. More than 50 percent of diagnosed cases of sleep apnea are identified in people aged 40 and over, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Data. It’s an incredible chance to join
Work on and invest in diagnostic technologies
AI has the potential for life and health care transformation, including earlier and more accurate diagnosis. In some cases, AI is already hailed as a master predictor. Researchers found that in 87 percent of cases, deep learning algorithms correctly detected disease after analyzing data from 14 studies. The number must be as close as possible to 100 million.
Work with AI to improve memory function
Note that in 2019, it will cost the U.S. an estimated $290 billion for Alzheimer’s and related disorders, and by 2050, those costs could grow as high as $1.1 billion. How can you innovate in order to reduce the number of cases and related costs? It may be by cognitive assessment technology that improves brain health, early detection of dementia and Alzhiemer.
