Pay due attention to the coordinated and synergistic development of information technology, information technology, the information society and the ageing society in the light of technological trends. The information society brings with it new economic models and dynamics that interact with an ageing society and place new demands on social participation, social functioning and social goals. How to make the most of the increase in overall intellectual resources of intelligence brought about by the increased longevity of the population in an ageing society is a major proposition in the context of the ageing and information society. At the same time, it is important to assess comprehensively the various real and potential effects of technological advances, such as information technology, on an ageing society.

On June 30, at the 22nd China International Software Expo, the Beijing Municipal Commission of Economy and Informatization released the White Paper on the Development of Artificial Intelligence Industry in Beijing. The white paper shows that as of May 8, 2018, there were 1,070 AI companies in Beijing, accounting for 26% of the country's 4,040 AI companies; of the 1,237 AI companies (including 31 listed companies) that have taken venture capital investments nationwide, 431 (including 12 listed companies) are in Beijing, accounting for 35%. Beijing - "China's No. 1 AI City" is a well-deserved title. The white paper also identifies the key areas of integration between AI and the real economy in Beijing as smart healthcare, smart home, smart city, new retail and driverless.
The absence of the key application area of artificial intelligence in Beijing, the "first city of AI in China", cannot be regretted.
In fact, Beijing is one of the most representative cities in China with an aging population, while being the "No. 1 AI city in China".
