Analyzing Cognitive Flexibility in Older Adults Through Playing with Robotic Cubes

Abstract : Cognitive flexibility is an important ability to adapt to changing situations. We consider the evolution of technologies in the digital era as a changing situation requiring the individuals to maintain a certain cognitive flexibility. Across the lifespan, cognitive flexibility is an essential ability to adapt to a continuous evolution of human-computer interactions (HCI). In this study, we observe older adults in a playful robotic task aiming to observe their cognitive flexibility in order to consider if older adults shows an adequate level of cognitive flexibility to solve a problem solving task with unknown robotic cubes. The playful robotic task engages the participants individually in problem solving a puzzle-based challenge with modular robotics.
