The expectations gap: A new opportunity and a new challenge by Colin Milner
At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology AgeLab, the prospect of "Life Tomorrow" engages a multidisciplinary research team. "The MIT AgeLab focuses not on aging"- as might be expected - "but on the future of living," according to a video overview. Director Joseph F. Coughlin, PhD, founded the research program "to invent new ideas and creatively translate technologies into practical solutions that improve people's health and enable them to 'do things' throughout the life span." Of equal importance "is the belief that innovations in how products are designed, services are delivered, or policies are implemented are (critical) to our quality of life tomorrow."
