Abstract [en]

The AGNES project, started in September 2009, has developed user-sensitive home-based ICT-environments capable of detecting, communicating and responding to the elderly person’s needs and their daily activities. Throughout the project, we have included target elderly users as active members in the design and evaluation of the technology, with user groups in Sweden, Spain and Greece. The purpose of the technology that was developed and installed in users’ homes was to provide a feeling of connectedness and safety, sensory stimulation and an increased social network. The AGNES approach includes the unobtrusive detection of user states and activities, based on inexpensive mass-market components such as web-cams and mobile phones; a social networking technology platform specifically designed to meet the needs of, and be usable by, the elderly person, and which provides the communications channel through which people and applications communicate; and ambient interaction devices for the display of information and events and for easy interaction with the home-based system and connected others. AGNES is a first step in demonstrating that integrated innovative ICT solutions can produce beneficial effects on the cognitive wellbeing of elderly people by preventing social isolation and mental deterioration. The AGNES approach and our results to date will be described in the presentation
