著者：Yoko Nishihara, Junjie Shan, and Yihong Han
概要：This research uses information science approach for preventing the physical and social frailty of older people living in an aging community with a low birthrate. In this study, we hypothesize that older peoples’ physical activity and sociable communication will increase if they have more interactions with others and the outside environment. We believe that by raising their interest in the surrounding daily activities could help improve their interaction with the outside society. This study is conducted in Yogo Town in Shiga Prefecture, Japan as an area of an aging community with a low birthrate. Yogo Town provides a moving stall for older people to assist them in purchasing daily necessities. We install a chatting bot in the moving stall to attract older people to visit it. If older people visit the moving stall more, their physical frailty could be prevented through these increased physical activities. If older people could interact and communicate more with others through the enjoyment of conversations and games with the chatting bot, their social frailty also has the chance to improve. This paper describes the issues discussed in this study, introduces a developed chatting bot, and reports on plans for future experiments.
