End-User Study Results Presented at Annual Congress of the German Society of Geriatrics

An early prototype of the ALFRED System has been evaluated in a first user study with 12 senior citizens. The results were presented to 500 domain experts at the annual congress of the German Society of Geriatrics in Frankfurt. The study revealed some barriers to speech recognition experienced by older people interacting with the ALFRED system. Those barriers will be addressed during the on-going development process and will help to improve the overall user experience of the ALFRED system.
