Automatic Quiz Generation for the Elderly

Abstract

According to the literature, ageing causes declines in sensory, perceptual, motor and cognitive abilities. The combination of reduced vision, hearing, memory and mobility contributes to isolation and depression. We argue that memory games have potential for enhancing the cognitive ability of the elderly and improving their life quality. In our earlier research, we designed tangible tabletop games to help the elderly remember and talk about the past. In this paper, we report on our further research in the automatic generation of quizzes based on Wikipedia and other online resources for entertainment and memory training of the elderly.
