    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientific


    Goldenworkers -project will provide a roadmap of ICT at work over 10, 20 and 30 years. The purpose of the project is to sensitize the research community, but also policy makers and society more broadly about the importance of applying ICT to improve work environments for an ageing population. Based on metastudy of previous projects and roadmaps the most relevant technologies for the focus of the Goldenworker -project are: (1) Ambient intelligence, (2) Augmented and virtual reality, (3) Affective computing, (4) Robotics, (5) Internet, (6) Invasive technologies, (7) Quantum computing, and (8) Design approach. These technologies are not independent of each other but rather interact to create new service opportunities.
