HomeAssist: An Assisted Living Platform for Aging in Place Based on A Multidisciplinary Approach
Speaker: Charles Consel, Inria / Bordeaux Institute of Technology, Professor of Computer Science

The HomeAssist project proposes a systemic approach to introducing an assisted living platform at the home of for older adults. To do so, we formed a trans-disciplinary team that allows (1) to identify the user needs from a gerontological and psychological viewpoint;(2) to propose assistive applications designed by human factors and HCI experts, in collaboration with caregivers and users; (3) to develop and test applications designed and developed by software engineers;(4) to conduct a field study to assess the benefits of the platform and assistive applications, in collaboration with caregivers, by deploying the system at the actual homes.
