: Currently, advances in technology have permitted increases in the life expectancy of older adults. As a result, a large segment of the world population is 60's years old, and over. Depression is an important disease in older adults is depression, which seriously affects the moods and behavior of elderly. Novel technologies for smart cities allow us to monitor people and prevent problematic situations related to this mental illness. In this paper, we propose a predictive model to automatically
