Project: AI-based voice assistance for older adults with and without intellectual disability: ecologically valid methods applying automated emotion and speech analysis. The project „ AI-based voice assistance for older adults with and without intellectual disabilitiy: ecologically valid methods applying automated speech recognition and emotion analysis” explores how older adults use an AI-based voice assistant, how the use is experienced emotionally, and which potentials and challenges this creates for the perceived quality of life and social participation. We concentrate on two user groups that previously have not found much attention in the area, although an AI-based voice assistance may be particularly useful: older adults with and without intellectual disability.
