Abstract

This research will contribute to the well-being of our ageing population by extending their independence, and hence their ability to remain safely in their homes. This will benefit them, their carers and the rest of society. The synergy between user modelling, language technology and sensor networks, grounded in psychological findings, will yield high quality, novel scientific advances. The deployed prototypes will provide proof of concept of an application that improves our daily living, creating commercialisation opportunities.
