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 use a case scenario as base for domain experts in their development of the interaction between software agents and with the older adult in assessment and adaptation for supporting him/her in a home environment. The potentials in allowing professionals author and design the dialogue systems as part of a meta-design process is evaluated and discussed.
