Evaluation

Now that we are moving into an era of living until 100 years old, more and more people are suffering from dementia. This idea of utilizing NHK's tremendous amount of video archive to prevent or reduce the likelihood of developing the condition is fascinating. After much trial and error, it is now being utilized in many elderly care facilities thanks to its ease of use. It is also admirable that the VR and web contents are designed in a way that offers a fun learning experience to anyone.
