This interdisciplinary and innovative centre catalyses the development of the necessary technology and data science. They will optimise these technologies in a model home environment, deploy them in real-world evaluation studies and then, having established an evidence base, deliver them to people with dementia and their carers. The centre will:
- Create low cost and practical continuous monitoring technologies that derive key dementia-related measures such as EEG, sleep disturbance and infection diagnosis in the home.
- Develop reliable, safe and secure artificial intelligence (AI) systems that improve health autonomy by predicting clinical events, supporting activities of daily living and facilitating communication between patients, carers and health professionals.
- Integrate robotic devices that monitor and manage the environment for improved safety and patient quality of life.
- Move the point-of-care into the home and allow clinical teams to provide personalised, predictive and preventative healthcare.
