Healthy Home, Care Research and Technology Centre, UK DRI

Lead Research Organisation: Imperial College London

Abstract

This programme will produce safe, reliable and usable technologies for the collection of dementia relevant data. User compliance and acceptability is a key challenge and where possible we are developing passive monitoring using environmental sensors, reserving wearable technologies for when close proximity monitoring is necessary. New technologies will link to the Healthy Home. We will develop adaptive AI/machine learning algorithms to predict clinically relevant information that adapt to seasonality, environmental and contextual changes. The Healthy Home will allow integration and fusion of existing and new forms of data and will provide flexible layers for developing and integrating continual and adaptive AI/machine learning algorithms and new observation generation and clinical pathways and response mechanisms.

Technical Summary

The UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) is an initiative funded by the Medical Research Council, Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK. Funding details for UK DRI programmes will be added from 2020.

This programme focuses on developing safe, reliable and usable technologies for the collection of dementia relevant data. User compliance and acceptability is a key challenge and where possible we are developing passive monitoring using environmental sensors, reserving wearable technologies for when close proximity monitoring is necessary. We will develop adaptive and personalised AI/machine learning algorithms to predict clinically relevant information that adapt to seasonality, environmental and contextual changes. The Healthy Home will allow integration and fusion of existing and new forms of data and will provide flexible layers for developing and integrating continual and adaptive AI/machine learning algorithms and new observation generation and clinical pathways and response mechanisms.
