August 14, 2019 Meeting

Computer Services for Seniors

As our population ages and technology expands, the need for help for our senior population to understand the use of all the new gadgets available becomes increasingly important. Our August 2019 meeting will feature a panel of three speakers with 20-30 minute presentations on topics of help for seniors with the new technology. A Q&A discussion will follow.

Jayant Kashyap, Google
The anatomy of today’s Jeeves – smart assistants and their potential

We are witnessing a marked transition in computing as people increasingly interact with non-traditional computers (aka. smart ‘insert-term-here’). What does it take to build a viable system to support such engagements; how is it impacting the people from around the world? And where do we go from here?

Jayant is a Software Engineer at Google, and has been working on Assistant since moving to the Bay Area earlier this year. Prior to moving here, he helped build an enterprise supply chain tracking system for Google.

Ryan Kawamoto, Senior Planet @Avenidas
Aging with Attitude 

Senior Planet is an award-winning program that helps those aged 60 and older use technology to connect, learn, and grow. His presentation will describe the epic new partnership between Avenidas and Older Adults Technology Services.

Ryan Kawamoto, a Bay Area native, is the Regional Director for the Senior Planet @Avenidas. He provides operational and administrative assistance while also maintaining the center’s technology courses. Ryan is the former Executive Director of Yu-Ai Kai Japanese American Community Senior Service of San Jose and the former Chair of the Aging Services Collaborative of Santa Clara County. 

Mick Fitzgerald, Anew Vista
Online Service Marketplace Networks – The Next Big Thing

Empowered with knowledge, experience, and wealth amassed over decades, older adults are poised to take the lead in driving the development of the next wave of consumer technologies.  They comprise the largest and fastest growing consumer segment.  Demands for continually improving wellness and lifestyle product/services and primary health care at home are transforming older adult households.  AnewVista is working with household consumers to shape daily living systems and transform lifestyle technologies.

Mick is CTO and founding partner at AnewVista. He leads the technology and development roadmap. He has developed systems and startups in robotics, sensors, and AI – from lab to market – spanning several industries and academia. 

As usual, the meeting will be held at the Palo Alto Elks Lodge, 4249 El Camino Real, Palo Alto and begins at 7PM. We will be meeting in the Conference Room on the second floor.

For those who enjoy the schmooze, we will have our usual no-host pre-meeting dinner at 5:30PM in the Bistro Café on the first floor of the lodge.
