Senior care service gets 'smarter' in Hangzhou
Hangzhou, capital of East China's Zhejiang province, is a national pilot zone for the application of smart technologies and artificial intelligence in senior care.
A total of 2,013,297 Hangzhou citizens are aged 60 years old or above, accounting for 16.97 percent of the city's overall population.
In recent years, Hangzhou authorities have been consistently upgrading senior care services through the widespread adoption of advanced information technologies, such as the internet of things, cloud computing, big data, and smart hardware.
Hangzhou is developing a highly responsive and interactive senior care service system, which features tailor-made services, quality evaluations, distance monitors, and data analysis.
