    The Future of Robots in a Super-Aged Society

    Ala Szczepura*, Toshio Nomura and Deidre Wild

    It is estimated that the world population aged 65+ will triple from 6.9% to 20% by 2050 [1]. Across the world, different countries are at various stages in this super-ageing journey. Japan is the most rapidly ageing society with 28.2% now in this age group; in contrast, emerging economies such as India have some of the world’s youngest populations (6.1% aged 65+) [2]. The creation of super-aged societies will be without parallel in human history. While people may be living longer, it is also important to consider their Quality of Life (QoL), whether these additional years are ‘healthy life years’ [3].
