Natural Interaction between Avatars and Persons with Alzheimer's Disease
TLDR
A natural human computer interaction paradigm is proposed for persons with cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer's Disease that uses a realistic virtual character, rendered on a common television set, to play the role of a virtual personal assistant that shows reminders, notifications and performs short dialogues with the user.
Providing universally accessible interactive services through TV sets: implementation and validation with elderly users
TLDR
A new approach to integrate interactive services provided by an AmI environment with the television set, which is one of the most widely used interaction client in the home environment is described.
Reliability of Supervised Machine Learning Using Synthetic Data in Health Care: Model to Preserve Privacy for Data Sharing
TLDR
This work sets out to understand the difference in performance of supervised machine learning models trained on synthetic data compared with those trained on real data and highlights the potential of synthetic data and the need for further evaluation of their robustness.
TAQIH, a tool for tabular data quality assessment and improvement in the context of health data
TLDR
TAQIH enables and supports users to carry out EDA on tabular health data and to assess and improve its quality and provides a quantitative value to the dataset improvements.
URC based accessible TV
TLDR
A new architecture to make TV sets accessible for all is presented, based on the ISO/IEC 24752 Universal Remote Console Framework standard, which allows the development of pluggable user interfaces for any type of user.
Platforms for AAL Applications
TLDR
AAL - Ambient Assisted Living is a topic that is unobtrusively integrated in “smart home environments” and supports people in their daily lives.
Upper Limb Posture Estimation in Robotic and Virtual Reality-Based Rehabilitation
TLDR
Results show that this method properly estimates the limb posture to animate avatars that represent the patient in VR games and obtain kinematic data for the patient assessment during elbow and wrist analytic rehabilitation.
Universal Remote Delivery of Rehabilitation: Validation with Seniors' Joint Rehabilitation Therapy
TLDR
A universal remote rehabilitation delivery approach supporting the introduced flexibility needs and an implementation in joint rehabilitation for the elderly is described, showing the validity of the approach and the acceptance of the developed human −computer interaction paradigm.
The Si elegans Project - The Challenges and Prospects of Emulating Caenorhabditis elegans
TLDR
The overall concepts are presented with special focus on the virtual embodiment of the nematode with a closed-feedback loop, which will result in motor commands at neuromuscular junctions at the hardware-software interface to actuate virtual muscles of the virtual nematodes.
Universal Remote Console-based next-generation accessible television
TLDR
This paper presents a new approach to make current and future television universally accessible both for remotely operating the TV set and for interacting with online services delivered through the TV.
