IT DOESN'T seem that long ago when robotics was just a phenomenon conjured up for film, tv and books, but now robotics is a reality, and it's something experts on ageing are hoping to embrace to provide a better lifestyle for those who are entering their later life.
Msc. Gertjan Baars is an information management and technology expert and Senior Director within the PwC Netherlands' Regional Government group.
