Title: Coordinated Persuasion with Dynamic Group Formation for Collaborative Elderly Care
Abstract: Ageing in place demands a new paradigm of in-house caregiving allowing many aspects of daily lives to be tackled by smart appliances and technologies. The important challenges include the effective provision of recommendations by multiple parties of caregiver constituting changes of the user’s behavior. In this multiagent environment, interdependencies between agents become major issues to tackle. This paper presents an approach of dynamic group formation for autonomous caregiving agents to collaborate in recommending different aspects of well-being. The approach supports the agents to regulate the timing of their recommendations, prevent conflicting messages, and cooperate to make more effective persuasions. A simulation of virtual elderly-care system demonstrates how dynamically grouped and collaborating agents can imply improvements in persuasive recommendation.
