In this paper, we present our ongoing research on robots as a screening tool for potential cognitive impairment, a risk factor for dementia and other mental diseases. We implemented a psychometric test on a state-of-the-art social robot, realizing a cognitive assessment via Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), and we compared it to the traditional paper-and-pencil testing. Our goal was to test the feasibility of this procedure and collect information about novel technology applied in psychological assessment. Results suggest that the goal is achievable under professional supervision, but the technology needs further work and refinement for a fully autonomous assessment.
