Dementia Australia: Talk with Ted

AI Training Experience   |   Dementia Australia/ A2I2    

Dementia Australia, Deakin's A2I2 and Fika Entertainment have developed a new immersive experience named Talk with Ted. 

 

This innovative tool provides aged care training in a realistic and safe way, to help staff understand the impact communication has on people living with dementia. 

 

Talk with Ted has been engineered by A2I2 staff from scratch, with the avatar being designed to exhibit the behaviour and emotions that are associated with dementia. At the core of this immersive experience is the ability to have a full conversation with Ted. Trainees must adapt their communication in a way that is empathetic and respectful of the behaviours associated with dementia.
