The interdisciplinary research project Ageing Smart - Designing Spaces Intelligently at the TU Kaiserslautern addresses the "baby boomer" generation born between 1955 and 1969. As they gradually enter retirement age, municipalities are challenged to create age-appropriate residential locations and supply structures. In an integrated approach, the researchers are therefore bringing together spatial planning, infrastructural and supply-side approaches from the perspective of the "baby boomers" and the municipalities. The aim is to develop a data-based system that serves as a decision-making aid for public actors in their planning processes. The project will run from 2021 to 2026 and is funded by the Carl Zeiss Foundation. The Artificial Intelligence group and DFKI are part of the project consortium and responsible for the use and development of AI-based methods and the realisation of the decision support system.
