NWA-IDG Grant: Is a dialect-speaking robot more easily accepted by the elderly?

Prize: Other distinctionAcademic

Jenny Doorn, van (Recipient) & Nanna Haug Hilton (Recipient)

Although the accessibility of technological applications to support elderly people in their daily lives should have increased by speech technology, elderly are still reluctant to use them. This multi- disciplinary project investigates whether the experience elderly have with technology improves if the speech technology uses their native regional language.
