Description

ALFRED’s objective is to develop a mobile, personalized assistant for elderly people, which helps them stay independent, coordinate with carers and foster their social contacts.
ALFRED is a mobile, personalized Butler, created using cutting edge technologies such as advanced speech interaction, so you can talk directly to him. ALFRED will be very easy to use and will provide 'context-sensitive services related to social inclusion, care, physical exercise and cognitive games.'

Objective

***Personal Interactive Assistant for Independent Living and Active Ageing***
In an optimal society, elderly people will be able to live at their own homes with the possibility to act independently and to actively participate in society. The ALFRED proposal will contribute to this goal by providing a personal and interactive assistant for elderly people. ALFRED will foster independent living and active ageing, integrating interactive services for elderly people and for care-takers. It will prevail age-related physical and cognitive impairments through the effective use of ICT and the better coordination of care processes.In order to achieve those objectives, the project will create a virtual, interactive assistant for elderly people. This assistant will be realized as a mobile device running on day-to-day Android smartphones allowing a wide impact of the project results. ALFRED will be fully voice-controlled and combine latest scientific research results from mobile development, data management, context aware services, speech recognition and personal data management, combined with activities from behavioural and social science.
In one sentence:
ALFRED will realize a mobile, personalized Butler for elderly people helping them to stay independent, to coordinate with caregivers and to foster the active participation in society.
ALFRED will be fully voice controlled and could – from a user perspective - also be described as "Siri for supporting elderly people" but with an open and extendable app background and with a clear and precise focus on improving the life of elderly people. Developers will be able to contribute new "Health Apps" to ALFRED extending the platform and generating new added value.
