Perspectives and solutions towards intelligent ambient assisted living systems

by   Hong Sun, et al.

The population of the elderly people has kept increasing rapidly over the world in the past decades. Solutions that are able to effectively support the elderly people to live independently at their home are thus urgently needed. Ambient assisted living (AAL) aims to provide products and services with ambient intelligence to build a safe environment around people in need. With the high prevalence of multiple chronic diseases, the elderly people often need different levels of care management to prolong independent living at home. An effective AAL system should provide the required clinical support as an extension to the services provided in hospitals. Following the rapid growth of available data, together with the wide application of machine learning technologies, we are now able to build intelligent ambient assisted systems to fulfil such a request. This paper discusses different levels of intelligence in AAL. We also introduce our solution for building an intelligent AAL system with the discussed technologies. Taking semantic web technology as its backbone, such an AAL system is able to aggregate information from different sources, solve the semantic gap between different data sources, and perform adaptive and personalized carepath management based on the ambient environment.
