On October 24, 2018, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a workshop titled Artificial Intelligence Applications for Older Adults and People with Disabilities: Balancing Safety and Autonomy. This workshop, hosted by the Forum on Aging, Disability, and Independence, examined the state of the art and knowledge about artificial intelligence (AI) and explored its potential to foster a balance of safety and autonomy for older adults and people with disabilities who strive to live as independently as possible.
