SenseCare - Sensor Enabled Affective Computing for Enhancing Medical Care

SenseCare Overview

SenseCare will enhance and advance future healthcare processes and systems using sensory and machine learning technologies to provide emotional (affective) and cognitive insights into patients well-being so as to provide them with more effective treatment across multiple medical domains.

SenseCare is a first of its kind and will uniquely create a cloud based affective computing operating system capable of processing and fusing multiple sensory data streams to provide cognitive and emotional intelligence for AI connected healthcare systems.

 

From a technical perspective, the primary objective is to “develop a cloud based affective computing (AC) operating system capable of processing and fusing multiple sensory data streams to provide cognitive and emotional intelligence for AI connected healthcare systems”.

 

The SenseCare solution will integrate data streams from multiple sensors and will fuse these streams to provide a global assessment that includes objective levels of emotional insight, well-being and cognitive state. The potential exists to integrate this holistic assessment data into multiple innovative applications across connected healthcare and various other inter-related and independent domains. SenseCare is thematically aligned with the current EU Horizon 2020 themes of “Internet of Things”, “Connected Health”, “Robotics” (including emotional robotics) and the “Human Brain Project”.

 

SenseCare for the healthcare sector will lead to significant financial and productivity gains for the sector worldwide. Patients and medical professionals will now have insights into both physical and cognitive states. How these states interact medically and potential patient impacts will be understood at a much more fine-grained level by all. Such innovations will ultimately lead to factors such as reduced hospital bed occupancy numbers, reduced medical risk, better overall patient care, holistic insights, reduced financial costs, mitigating legal and insurance exposure, new data for medical research and the potential for patients to play an ever increasing role in their own recuperation process.
