Research Seminar: Prof. Juan Augusto, Middlesex University

Date and time: Wednesday 8th July, 11:00am, room C217.

Title: “Examples of Ambient Assisted Living Systems Helping the Vulnerable"

Abstract: We will consider examples of Ambient Assisted Living systems which have been created to help vulnerable citizens. One of them was aimed at users officially diagnosed as experiencing early dementia symptoms, the other example is on an ongoing project trying to provide support for people with Down’s Syndrome. The seminar will explore the type of services delivered as well as the development methodology. Both projects have in common the use of user-centred development processes, with stakeholders engaging with the developing team from early stages and throughout the project.
