AI*AAL.it 2017 : Third Italian Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Ambient Assisted Living

CO-LOCATED WITH AI*IA 2017

In recent years has been an increasing attention on the topic of “prolonging independent living” and “aging well”. Several initiatives all over the world have focused on the problem of helping the aging population with technology; funding programs have been launched like the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) Joint Programme promoted by the European Commission, together with the topic “ageing well” within the FP7 and Horizon 2020 program. The general aim is the promotion of a healthier society, which constitutes a main social and economic challenge.

In this scenario, Artificial Intelligence techniques can play a crucial role. The development of new AI-based techniques, supporting older adults and helping them to cope with the changes of aging and cognitive decline, represents one of the most advanced ICT areas: Robotics, Assistive Technology for Cognition, Sensor-based Monitoring Systems, Compensation Systems, Security and Ethics, Continuous Learning and Navigation Supports for in-and-outdoor Systems are the fields where AI may challenge its solutions and contribute to innovative technological changes.

The working group “AI and Ageing Society” has previously organized several Workshops on Technological Challenges and Scenarios for the Ageing Society in Brescia, Palermo, Torino, and Genova to discuss about technological roles and opportunities for Artificial Intelligence in the Ageing Society domain.

Capitalizing from these activities, the group is trying to establish a stable forum on the topic and organizes the Second Edition of the Italian Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Ambient Assisted Living with the goal of collecting contributions, ideas and new scientific and technological scenarios, as well as to discuss and disseminate results on Artificial Intelligence for Ambient Assisted Living.
