Smart and Healthy Ageing through People Engaging in Supportive Systems
Throughout Europe, many people are handicapped by reduced capabilities that are either permanent or temporary. The EU-funded SHAPES project aims to create the first European open Ecosystem enabling the large-scale deployment of a broad range of digital solutions for supporting and extending healthy and independent living for such older individuals. SHAPES builds an interoperable platform integrating smart digital solutions to collect and analyse older individuals’ health, environmental and lifestyle information, identify their needs and provide personalised solutions that uphold the individuals’ data protection and trust.
Vicomtech, an applied research centre specialized in digital technologies located in San Sebastian, contributes with its experience in the field of natural language processing, artificial vision, Big Data systems and artificial intelligence to collaborate in the development of the SHAPES Technological Platform, as well as a set of digital solutions for the elderly to be validated in the project.
