SI4SI aims at creating a Smart Living Environment
SI4SI aims at creating a Smart Living Environment, feeding an AI-based system to identify different levels of isolation symptoms. Thanks to an AI Advisor, SI4SI improves decision making support while suggesting personalised activities to both Seniors and Caregivers. Furthermore, the AI Advisor feeds a Collaborative Application for Caregivers and a Smart Tablet (able to support both Video and Vocal interaction) which allows the caregivers and health practitioners can also interact with the seniors, sending input to the Tablet.
