Detection of behavioral changes in elderly people through non-invasive IoT (internet of things) with AI systems
The SECURHOME project aims to develop and validate a non-invasive device that through the daily behavior of a person can detect, using artificial intelligence techniques, if it is at risk or not through their daily activity at home analyzing their movement, sound, temperature, use of the television, etc., collecting these data from a non-invasive device and through the use of different artificial intelligence techniques the system will be able to learn the behaviors and the possible variations that may occur, in this way it will help adapt to the user's lifestyle and thus prevent any eventuality.
Once the device detects any eventuality, it will send alerts to previously configured family members and to the nearest health care center, in this way an agile and strategic method of attention will be achieved for the affected tenant, thus avoiding having to resort to some type of direct communication for your alert. Also, the system will be highly configurable, allowing for days of absence, presence of pets, type of notification to relatives, health center to be notified, etc. In this way it is considered that for this project the main objective will be to help elderly people, providing them with greater independence and security in their home.
Once the device is developed, two field studies will be carried out to validate the system and evaluate the acceptance of it by users while making a legal analysis of the implications that storage and analysis of personal data by systems may have. of artificial intelligence.
It is therefore a multidisciplinary and plurinational project to be carried out by researchers from various universities in Spain and Portugal in areas of technological knowledge, sociology and law. As a result of the technological systems and the two field studies, the systems will be integrated to create a more complete platform with higher data collection points and thus obtain better results.
The Coordinated Program is made up of the following research projects:
Project 1.- DSH (Sensory device for homes), whose Main Investigator is Dr. Ángel García Crespo, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, and who, in turn, will develop the general coordination of the Program.
Project 2.- "Mobile application in charge of domestic interaction through television". Its Main Investigator is Dr. Jorge Ferraz de Abreu, Universidade de Aveiro.
Project 3.- "Field study in Portugal and Spain". Dr. José Manuel Sousa São José will be the Main Investigator and the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, the entity responsible for the project.
Project 4.- "Analyze the new European regulations on data protection to guarantee compliance with the information collected", led by Dr. Ana Garriga Dominguez, Universidad de Vigo.
