Abstract

In this brief position paper, we present our vision for using software agents and related technologies to address the growing need of transcultural health-aware “Guides” for the elderly, an increasingly important topic given the clear trend of population ageing.

The main purpose is to help ageing people to avoid progressive loss of physical, cognitive, and emotional activity, and most importantly to avoid social exclusion
