Addressing the lack of social, cognitive, and physical stimuli among elders is a key factor to contrast Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) that can arise during the third age.

Abstract

Addressing the lack of social, cognitive, and physical stimuli among elders is a key factor to contrast Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) that can arise during the third age. Against such background, agent-based technology has been applied to different application domains related to the assistance of elders. In this demo, we introduce an application of this kind: an activity center featuring social, cognitive, and physical activities targeted for elders. This activity center interacts with an autonomous agent, called Virtual Caregiver, residing in the cloud and generating interventions based on users' data. We show how the user experience can be enriched with an adaptive configuration encouraging socialization and cognitive training.
