IT FOR JAPANESE SENIORS
While the technological innovation from Japan is widely recognised, 35 percent of the adult Japanese population can’t use computers.
Tokyo University of the Arts, the IT University of Copenhagen and NTT collaborate in order to find out how to meet the needs of different user groups in the development of novel technologies.
Through the collaboration, the Japanese researchers and the industry are introduced to the Scandinavian concept participatory design/co-design. The focus is on how to design technology that seniors can and will use.
