Authors: Aslihan Tece Bayrak
Abstract: The application of using digital technologies for diagnosis, treatment, and health care has increased as a strategy to provide effective and reachable services for a growing elderly population with increasing number of chronic diseases. Similarly, the interest in using game technology and game experience for these purposes is rising. This paper presents a conceptual model for a compassionate game AI that aids the player-patients throughout their gameplay experience. The model outlines how compassion can be injected in the nature of the companion to fulfill its role within a compassionate game. Compassionate game design aims to offer a comforting experience within the challenging nature of games. Complementing this, compassionate AI is up-lifting and supportive while also receptive to the dynamics of the game.
