Recent publications focus on the importance of designing an Ambient Intelligence that can be sensitive to human values and responsible for its societal impact. Obtaining and properly modeling these requirements can be a challenging task. Co-creation and social sciences methods are frequently applied in order to discover what end-users need using methods such as field/case studies where interviews or focus group sessions are conducted. However, those methods can be limited. This paper introduces two complementary approaches, one using traditional semi-structured and in-depth interviews, and another one based on 3D simulation modeling. The context is a research project where interviews were conducted to caregivers of people with Alzheimer disease. When designing the solution, it is important to account what kind of technology the end-users are expecting and what scenarios need to be accounted. So, the paper first summarizes what technology this collective is seeking or willing to accept. Then it proceeds with a brief summary of one of the interviews. Following, it shows the process of transferring this information to actual 3D simulations and discusses the benefits of doing so in the context of Ambient Assisted Living.
