Joe Coughlin is the Director of the Age Lab at MIT in Boston and a leader in research on how demographic change, social trends and technology converge to drive future innovations in business and government.   Check out his blog Disruptive Demographics on Aging as an Extreme Sport.

In his talk at TEDX Boston, Professor Coughlin challenges the audience to new thinking for creation of new tools to enable ageing population to continue to live long quality lives – the point is to NOT make ageing an extreme sport but an easy transition.       This is the type of innovative thinking that will benefit many elders now and in the future.
