FSU researchers use AI to prompt older adults’ participation in research

In a new study, Florida State University researchers explore the challenges of recruiting and retaining older adults to participate in research.

The study also marks the first step of a broad, interdisciplinary FSU effort to increasingly use artificial intelligence in research.

Along with her 12 FSU-based co-authors, Carr suggests that identifying those clusters – “fun seekers” and “research helpers,” for example — can guide recruitment and retention strategies.
