Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In this study, we aim to realize an assistive technology that can present necessary information to elderly people with cognitive concerns or dementia in a way that is adaptable to their home life. To achieve this goal, we propose ALPS (Assisted Living by Personalized Speaker), a system that presents appropriate information according to various locations and times in the home. We installs IoT speakers with motion sensors at key locations in the home, and by linking them to ECA(Event-Condition-Action) rules in the cloud, ALPS provides information based on location and time in voice. We implemented a prototype of the proposed ALPS and conducted a case study of two elderly people. As a result, it was found that by defining ECA rules for each problem, the system can present information according to the individual's lifestyle.
