Project title: 
Robust spoken interaction in assistive systems for older adults and people with cognitive impairments
In this ongoing project, prototypes of a spoken-language calendar management system are being developed and evaluated, envisioned to assist older adults and people with cognitive impairments in maintaining a self-determined life. Particular emphasis is placed on the "middle layer" of dialogue management, as well as awareness and control of the temporal structure and the amount of information at a time, in order to minimize miscommunications and communication problems for both sides. Additionally, the possible influence of social license on the necessary proactive control of dialogue structure by the autonomous system, and suitable surface forms, are the area of ongoing evaluations.
