Artificial Intelligence for an Ageing Society


Artificial Intelligence for an Ageing Society

Program here

Increased life expectancy is an achievement of the modern society in OECD Countries (and recently in developing countries) thanks to the technological progress in health, living places and quality of food. The aggregate consequence of the prolongation of the life-time span is the growth of an ageing society, testified by several demographic studies. The study of the consequences of an ageing society on the future of social living had recently been considered by large world institutions (UN, EU), which addressed and designed programs for social and technological development taking in account the impact of the ageing society in the future of the world.
Within this framework, hot-topics have been identified, such as “prolonging independent living”, “aging well” or “social inclusion”. Several initiatives all over the world took care of these aspects focusing on the problem of developing a new generation of innovative technologies to face an ageing society and its growing needs.
There are many scientific initiatives within the Ageing Society scenario and the role of ICT is expected to provide technological solution to the involved problems. Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods and techniques have and will have a pivotal role, due to the advanced goals of the discipline and its inner cross-disciplinary attitude, in order to deliver innovative and impacting results and related technologies. Facing the problems of an Ageing Society requires a cross-disciplinary approach, too. The development of new AI-based solutions to support and help older adults to cope with the changes of aging and cognitive decline represents one of the most advanced ICT areas in the AI field. Internet Science, Robotics, Assistive Technology for Cognition, Sensor-based Monitoring Systems, Ethics, Compensation Systems, Road Security, Continuous Learning and Navigation Supports for in-and-outdoor Systems are the fields where AI may challenge its solutions and contribute to innovative technological changes, but any other issue will be welcome: in the pirit of INSCI 2019, the main goal of the Workshop is collecting contributions, ideas and new scientific and technological scenarios, as well as to discuss and disseminate results on Artificial Intelligence for an Ageing Society.

Authors are invited to submit research extended abstract (2 pages) with provoking ideas and work-in-progress on the above mentionedissue. Accepted papers will be published in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer.

The Workshop is joined to the activities of the Working Group “Artificial Intelligence for an Ageing Society” of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (
