Abstract [en]

Existing approaches to ambient assisted living (AAL) often fail to consider a human agent's needs from a holistic perspective. In particular the regular assessment of their changing abilities, skills and limitations are often treated as a separate matter in healthcare, thereby affecting the possibilities to provide support tailored to their current condition. Therefore, the objective of this work is to integrate assessment done by the healthcare professional into the framework of AAL. We propose a framework based on a model for activity-centered modeling of knowledge and interaction tailored to users (ACKTUS) and an egocentric interaction model. We exemplify the interaction between system modules as agent dialogues in assessment and adaptation for supporting an older adult in a home environment.
