I discuss the two revolutions taking place: rapid technology diffusion and population aging and why there is a technology adoption lag for aging adults.  I also outline a framework for choosing technology interventions: Prevention, Rehabilitation, Augmentation, and Substitution (PRAS) and discuss its application to "brain training" and to smart vehicles (ADAS and AV).  Finally, I discuss challenges to using technology to improving quality of life for aging adults including usability and reliabiity.
