HERMES - Cognitive Care and Guidance for Active Aging
HERMES provides an innovative integrated approach to cognitive care covering the domain of cognitive support and training. This is achieved through an advanced, integrated, assistive technology that combines the functional skills of the older person to reduce age-related decline of cognitive capabilities and assist the user where necessary. Based on intelligent audio and visual processing and reasoning, the project results in a combination of a home-based and mobile device to support the user's cognitive state and prevent cognitive decline.
HERMES assesses the following five core objectives associated with the five main areas of cognitive support, care and wellbeing:
OBJ 1.\tAdvanced activity reminding to assist the user in performing everyday tasks and to support independent living. Modeled after human associative memory, activities are automatically deduced from the captured information using advanced speech recognition and processing algorithms.
OBJ 2.\tFacilitation of episodic memory through the capture of content in audio and image including when, where, who, and what of a moment, including additional contextual information.
OBJ 3.\tCognitive training through games with important moments.
OBJ 4.\tConversation support on the grounds of interactive reminiscence based on the recordings of important moments.
OBJ 5.\tMobility support to address the needs of the user outside of the house with cognitive support when and where needed.
HERMES aims specifically at supporting the decline in (declarative and prospective memory) capabilities by using other functional cognitive skills and training these, thereby reducing the need for active care and support and substantially increasing the ability to cope with everyday life and to live independently.
