12th June 2018
CINN sponsored event

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Advances in healthcare and living conditions make that our population is able to live longer. Such advancements come with the downside that a growing number of elderlies live alone at home and become more fragile to physical and mental illnesses. Modern technology is looking to characterise elderly behaviour employing, for instance, camera-based systems. The implications on deploying and understanding behaviour with such systems reaches different disciplines such as Computer Vision, Neurosciences, Psychology among others.

This workshop will look to discuss the implications of deploying automatic behaviour analysis systems for elderly people health monitoring at home. What can Computer-Vision systems do? What psychological features should these systems look at ? How are emotional states best recognised? How can artificial intelligence-based models be validated or be in agreement with psychological and neuroscience models?


To answer these questions, the workshop will have a series of invited speakers from Computer Vision, Neurosciences, Psychology to discuss the subject from their domain of speciality. The workshop will be rounded with a general discussion.
