In this research, social science and engineering researchers and community leaders work together to understand the situation (digital gap) of “avoidance of new ICT technology” and “difficulty in learning” that elderly people have. Hold discussion workshops in Japan and the United States. Based on the knowledge obtained there, we aim to sort out the issues that the research team should solve and to formulate a specific R & D plan for them.
