The project "Hello Jenny" uses students and technology to prevent loneliness with elderly people

"Hello Jenny" is a project to connect seniors and students through a smart speaker. Seniors communicate with their 'buddy' by pressing the yes or no button. What is the differences with the mobile phone? Junior researcher Ben Robaeyst explains "When you make a phone call, you must be both available at the same time. Many seniors don't easily ask for help, they don't want to disturb their buddy. Through this interface the student can choose when he answers via the chatbot. Because of this the contact is more accessible."
