Artificial intelligence devices would reinforce systemic ageism


Due to the lack of manpower, some countries resort to medical devices to replace human supervision with the elderly. These devices use artificial intelligence to collect data on individuals and detect the risk of diseases or prevent falls. Although sometimes these tools can be useful for monitoring the health of older people, they would encourage ageism. Independent journalist Eugénie Émond explains how these devices increase the risk of social isolation among seniors and how they analyze the data collected in a non-transparent way.

The way in which these devices work would also help to amplify stereotypes related to the elderly and would encourage certain discriminatory practices against them, in addition to undermining the quality of care.

Eugénie Émond examines the questions raised by this problem, which raises many eyebrows.
