Abstract

This paper deals with providing adapted media content and services for elderly and dependent persons living alone. In our approach, providing solutions and technologies for elderly requires to consider the simplification of architectures and the acceptance of the user. We propose to provide content and services using familiar TV sets and to consider medical advices and recommendations in using media and TV programs. As the user control is a key criterion in adopting context-aware systems, we consider the user actions and preferences. The proposed media selection scheme considers the evolution of the user preferences based on the recent user behavior patterns.
