About the Workshop

The health care systems in Europe and the most developed countries in the world are faced with challenging transition processes due to demographic change. The increase of the elderly population and the expectation of life brings about serious risks, with some profound socio and economic impact on our societies. To reduce the burden of social care, integration of existing unobtrusive, easy-to-use and transparent monitoring systems are proven to be an acceptable solution by the elderly and their careers. The ultimate goal of research is to replace the carer with a virtual intelligent carer capable of interpretation and understanding of their activities.
Many technological advances in monitoring systems are developed. Ambient Intelligence have been adopted as a term referring to environments that are sensitive and responsive to the presence of people and it is a candidate to become the next wave of computing. Indeed, this novel computing approach is aimed to extend ubiquitous vision by incorporating intrinsic intelligence in pervasive systems. This idea enables the study, design and development of embodiments for smart environments that not only react to human events through sensing, interpretation and service provision, but also learn and adapt their operation and services to the users over time. These embodiments employ contextual information when available, and offer unobtrusive and intuitive interfaces to their users.

The aim of this workshop is to encompass valuable research and achievement in the monitoring, interpretation and understanding of human behavior through smart technologies. There are many readily available monitoring systems to monitor people in their own home environment. However, there are challenges ahead with respect to interpretation and understanding of the sensory data and linked that with the actual activity representing a specific behavior.
