Knowledge Transfer in Smart Environments

Unmet Need: Simplified Training for Assistive Artificial Intelligence in New Sensored Environments
Data mining and pervasive computing technologies found in smart homes offer unprecedented opportunities for providing context-aware services, including health monitoring and assistance to individuals experiencing difficulties living independently at home.  However, activity recognition necessary to provide these services has typically involved gathering and labeling large amounts of data in each setting to learn a model for activities in that setting.    
This Technology: Methods and Systems for Templated Setup of Activity Recognition
This invention provides streamlined generalized models for training common activity recognition with multiple environment settings and resident types.
  • Automation and activity-prompting in assisted-care facilities
  • Smart homes
  • Simplified training
