Sensitive design for supporting emotional memories in old age

Speaker:  Corina Sas – Lancaster, United Kingdom
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


Much research on aging technologies has focused on diagnosis or reminiscing technologies targeting episodic memories more broadly. While emotions are often weaved in these memories, their value for one’s sense of self can vary greatly. Taking a personhood approach, this talk will focus on a specific type of episodic memories, namely self defining memories in old age and how they can be better supported through design. The talk will describe empirically-grounded insights into novel physical and digital memory cues for self-defining memories, and long term deployment to facilitate both reminiscing as well as sensory stimulation in advanced dementia. The talk will unpack design implications informed by such work for increased sensitive design to support emotional memories in old age.
