The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) recently launched its first original film series, “Technology’s Golden Age,” produced by BBC StoryWorks Commercial Productions. The series aims to show why accessible and inclusive technology matters, and how it has the potential to improve everyone’s lives, and examines the power of consumer technology to enhance quality of life for the aging global population.
“Technology will improve the lives of billion,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA in a statement. “We’re thrilled to share the stories of global technology innovators who are helping older people enjoy rich, independent lives.”
The release of these films follows conversations on accessibility tech and age tech at CES 2023, developed in collaboration with the CTA Foundation. The Foundation funds programs and technologies that improve the lives of older adults and people with disabilities and facilitates dialogue among industry, consumers, government, advocacy groups and other key stakeholders.
By 2050, more than two billion people will be over the age of 60 – twice as many as today. This film series asks how technology can support older populations in the age of the 100-year lifespan.
Through 28 brand films spotlighting technology products and services from around the globe, “Technology’s Golden Age” highlights innovations that are reshaping the technology industry and our future. Chapters focus on inclusion by design, expanding our world, independent living through care and wellness throughout a lifetime.
“Technology’s Golden Age” traverses the world through the United States, Kenya, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, Singapore, India and beyond with each film from a different organization. The stories cover innovations from a musical technology app that helps older adults sing, to a program helping disabled students integrate at school, to an online platform enabling retirees to pursue lifelong learning.
