Will internet adoption among senior citizens (+65) in Europe go above 75% by the end 2022?
The European Union have identified Active and Assisted Living (AAL) as a critical field to investment for the future of Europe. One of the driving factors for a call for a technological solution in this field is that elderly or senior citizen(+65) is very quickly adopting modern technologies with internet adoption is one of the fastest rates of adoption. In 2007, Eurostat statistic said there was only 7% adoption of the internet while in 2018 this had increased to 58%.
The following articles suggest an active interest in a web-based solution for senior citizen or digital hospitals.

Metaculus help: Predicting
Predictions are the heart of Metaculus. Predicting is how you contribute to the wisdom of the crowd, and how you earn points and build up your personal Metaculus track record.
The basics of predicting are very simple: move the slider to best match the likelihood of the outcome, and click predict. You can predict as often as you want, and you're encouraged to change your mind when new information becomes available. With tachyons you'll even be able to go back in time and backdate your prediction to maximize your points.
The displayed score is split into current points and total points. Current points show how much your prediction is worth now, whereas total points show the combined worth of all of your predictions over the lifetime of the question. The scoring details are available on the FAQ.
Note: this question resolved before its original close time. All of your predictions came after the resolution, so you did not gain (or lose) any points for it.

Metaculus help: Community Stats
Use the community stats to get a better sense of the community consensus (or lack thereof) for this question. Sometimes people have wildly different ideas about the likely outcomes, and sometimes people are in close agreement. There are even times when the community seems very certain of uncertainty, like when everyone agrees that event is only 50% likely to happen.
When you make a prediction, check the community stats to see where you land. If your prediction is an outlier, might there be something you're overlooking that others have seen? Or do you have special insight that others are lacking? Either way, it might be a good idea to join the discussion in the comments.
