Given the heterogeneity of the elderly population, in their needs and circumstances amongst others, this is a significant challenge. In essence, it demands that a disparate suite of technologies be deployed, integrated, managed and interacted with in a seamless and intuitive fashion. In this paper, how this heterogeneity may be managed is discussed. In particular, the use of ontologies and middleware are proposed as potential solutions to this heterogeneity problem.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Copyright (published version):||Royal Irish Academy, 2010||Keywords:||AAL; Ambient assisted living; Middleware||Subject LCSH:||Technology and older people
