Mobile technologies offer the potential to enhance the lives of older adults. However, diminutive devices are often perplexing and many HCI problems exist. Consequently this potential is very often not exploited. In this paper we introduce MemoryLane, a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) based application being developed to enhance the reminiscence capabilities of older adults. Using abilities and preferences as a basis MemoryLane employs Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to adapt its multimodal interface to accommodate the differing needs of older users and to compose and recount user life-cached multimedia data as memory stories.
