Adapting a Virtual Assistant Device to Support the Interaction with Elderly People

Manuel Bolaños, Cesar Collazos, Francisco Gutiérrez

Abstract

Some authors agree that the elderly suffer social and technological isolation, or even exclusion, due to their aging condition, a situation that could worsen in the future, as the trend of higher population growth in the world, so some studies are needed to identify the expectations of such population in terms of the usage and adoption of technology; so, new technological developments implement specific requirements that help them to adapt to their use. This paper presents a study developed for evaluating the technological acceptance of smart virtual assistants by the elderly people. Such a study involves the design and the implementation of a recreational strategy to remember the taking of medications, considering some experiences in the development and implementation of technology for this kind of users.
