Why & How to Monitor People? Using IoT to Encourage Independent Living

Presented by

Dr Fernando Loizides

About this talk

Internet of Things (IoT) involves the interconnection of multiple devices able to capture and share data autonomously. The decrease in technology cost, availability of internet and rise in the need for sustainable ways for independent living of an aging population has given opportunity to home monitoring of individuals through smart home sensors. Information recording and transmission from these sensors, carry legal, ethical and intrusive factors but also permit a path to independent living capabilities. We will be presenting our R&D work undertaken to integrate sensors to create a smart home experience, including communication between the sensors and a bespoke home assistant for increasing interaction between the home user and the technology and access to friends and loved ones. We will discuss what the data tells us, what capabilities the future holds and how scalability means migrating from manual to automatic (machine / deep learning) pattern recognition. In the talk we will also be introducing the Cardiff University’s newly established Data Science Academy and identify opportunities for collaboration with industry partners.
