A New Paradigm of Geriatric Care Empowered by Applied AI

A New Paradigm of Geriatric Care Empowered by Applied AI

This video was recorded at 24th AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence, Atlanta 2010. Advances in sensor, communication, artificial intelligence technologies and data processing, coupled the increasing processing power, is causing a shift in the way we care for the elderly. This paper presents a new paradigm for geriatric care based on monitoring and assisting older adults in their own living settings. AI techniques could be applied to mine health and activity data collected in the home to detect indicators of early disease onset, deterioration or improvement, inform providers and allow the delivery of care services, including assistance and support. Examples of monitoring and assistive systems that apply AI techniques are discussed. The approach has significant value to older adults as well as caregivers, and allows care providers to extend services into the community.
