    Abstract

    Computer based recreational activities can be solution for aging. We are addressing memory related problems using a computer. We propose “Old Photos on Map” application (Vanhat Kuvat). The aim of Vanhat Kuvat is to activate one’s memory by using old photos and an assistant agent to wake up the past memories and experiences of childhood surroundings and architecture as well as personal hidden stories. We describe design issues related to user interfaces and interactions.
