Abstract

In this paper we introduce a conversational agent reminiscence companion system called Betty. Betty increases subjective wellbeing (SWB) by engaging with people and by collecting information during one-to-one conversations, then using this data in further personalised conversations with each individual. Results have shown a positive effect on SWB, and improvement in normal age-associated memory loss (NM) was evident through increased everyday interaction with Betty
