Title: Design of an Age-friendly E-commerce System
Abstract: With the explosive increasing of emerging mobile and online tools and services that dramatically change people’s daily living activities and the growing population of aging people, it is urgent to develop age-friendly systems that allow the elderly to quickly learn and enjoy the fast-changing world. In this paper, we focus on one of the most important online activities, i.e. online shopping, and proposed a design of an age-friendly E-commerce system. Specifically, we present our ideas on choosing from state-of-the-art AI technologies for the development of functional modules that may be helpful to the elderly during online shopping and illustrate our system integration methods that starting guideline for practitioners. Future work of this study will focus on user studies that help us to improve the system in terms of usability and user experience for the elderly.
