Using technology to enhance human interactions not replace them.

With AI and machine learning creeping their way into more areas of our lives, we often hear stories about how technology is going to automate and eliminate the role human beings can play in the workplace and beyond. Honor sees things a little differently. On a mission to modernise the care older adults receive in their own homes as they age, Honor is using technology to amplify the human factor, not minimise it, when it comes to improving the lives of older adults, their loved ones and the professionals that care for them.

Join Hanno and Olivia as they explore how to walk the tightrope between powerful software, meaningful relationships and thoughtful design.
