Abstract

The constant emergence and change of current technologies in the form of digital products and services can cause certain groups of the population to feel excluded. Older adults represent one such group. Our research combines computational models of argument and human-centric computing to impact the way in which older adults interact with broadcast debates. We present a preliminary user study where older adults interact with a debate and propose an application which uses speech recognition to classify spoken utterances and related them to segmented debates. Moreover, we discuss preliminary results on older adults interacting with the application in pilot experiments.
