PI - Research Centers
Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS will contribute to my-AHA project by providing the platform Smart Companion, developing a nutrition monitoring and intervention tool and the middleware server to promote the interaction and interoperability of the different platforms that will be included in my-AHA.
Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS team will employ their expertise and knowledge in information processing, artificial intelligence, software integration and human-computer interaction. Inês Sousa is coordinating Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS efforts in the project and contributing with knowledge in signal processing, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Ana Correia de Barros is contributing to the project on tasks related to user research and human-centred design. The tasks consist mostly of close contact with older adults and caregivers as well as prototype testing in order to guarantee viable, usable and acceptable solutions to users. António Santos is designing the architecture and coordinating the implementation of the middleware server that will enable the integration of several monitoring and intervention platforms.
Inês Sousa has a PhD in Biomedical Engineering and has been developing expertise and competences in the area of signal processing applied to different research fields, such as in situ drug delivery, functional magnetic resonance imaging and, more recently, fall detection, prevention and human motion analysis for ambulatory monitoring of the elderly.
ISMB will lead WP5 - iTV and mobile services - by studying and implementing the interaction between the user and my-AHA platform. In particular, ISMB will coordinate the activities for the developing of the cognitive games based on smart TV and mobile devices and of "my personal dashboard", the application used by the users to manage and follow her/his health status.
