SMILE – Providing digitalised prevention and prediction support for ageing people in smart living environments

The main aim of SMILE is to create SMart Inclusive Living Environments (SLE) with novel eHealth solutions that enable ageing in place. Specifically, the SLE ecosystem will provide an infrastructure, that not only supports older people to live independently and relatively actively, but also fosters collaboration and learning between older people and members of their circles of care.

This will be achieved by EU-Canadian cooperation on:

a) the Digital Care Facilitator an AI-based integration system
b) a conversational agent as an everyday intermediary between the older person, family, friends and other members of their circles of care
c) personal mHealth apps, and eHealth monitors and devices.

SINTEF contribute to the development of a method for user involvement in the design of technology for the elderly (gerontechnology) and lead the development of a digital assistant:

  • The method will ensure that the e-health solutions that are designed to take care of older people's own perspectives on their life situations and problems, while at the same time the technologies get the very best conditions for success in the market.
  • The digital assistant will, with the help of AI / ML and multimodal interaction, support older people living with complex and varied challenges such as cognitive impairment or chronic lung disease.
