Abstract

We describe a persuasive dialogue component for promoting and encouraging social interaction for older adults. In order to identify effective persuasive strategies we conducted an interview study with formal carers for older adults. From the results of our study we have identified 6 persuasive strategies, information requirements and developed a model using rules for assessing older adult profiles and applying persuasive strategies.
