Thesis Studio I - Midterm

  1. 1. Pervasive Computing addressing Cognitive Impairments Kelly Nichols Thesis Studio I : Midterm Prof. Scott Pobiner 11.03.10
  2. 2. How can pervasive technologies assist in helping to remind us of all of the information we put in computers?
  3. 3. At a Glance
  4. 4. Existing scheduling software packages offer good appointment and task management.
  5. 5. Robust reminder and notification strategies are lacking.
  6. 6. Task Watch whiteboard
  7. 7. Cuckoo IP
  8. 8. Daily Stack [Objects]
  9. 9. Some Information
  10. 10. Less Information
  11. 11. Make Physical
  12. 12. Glacially Kinetic
  13. 13. Hourglass Poetics
  14. 14. Prototype Not a Lamp
  15. 15. What Was Prototyped 1. Persistent display of information in the environment. 2. Display of abbreviated data set. 3. Dynamic display of information over time. 4.Information display responding to on- the-fly schedule revisions.
  16. 16. Cognitive Prostheses Devices, systems, and strategies that assist the user with memory, attention, concentration.
  17. 17. Who does this affect? • Elderly • The number of people age 65 and older is expected to grow from 39 million in 2008 to 72 million in 2030, and the number of people with AD doubles for every 5-year interval beyond age 65. • Developmentally Disabled • 800,000 children and adults in the United States are living with one or more of the symptoms of cerebral palsy. • Cognitive impairment is present in two thirds of patients with cerebral palsy. • Those with Traumatic Brain Injuries • Veterans, Automobile Crash Survivors, etc 1. American Family Physician, January 2006, www.aafp.org 2. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, www.ninds.nih.gov 3. National Institute on Aging, www.nia.nih.gov 1 3
  18. 18. How can pervasive technologies help cognitively impaired users in particular?
  19. 19. Shadow Reminder
  20. 20. Interface to assist people with dementia in remembering the procedural tasks involved in their activities of daily living
  21. 21. COACH “Cognitive Orthosis for Assisting aCtivities in the Home” Prompting device for guiding user through hand washing. Uses video tracking of the hands to determine which steps of the task have been completed. Provides audio prompts to keep the user on track. Precedent http://web.cs.toronto.edu/research/profiles/coach.htm
  22. 22. Ambient Kitchen A lab-based replication of a real kitchen where careful design has hidden the additional technology, and allows both the evaluation of pervasive computing prototypes and the simultaneous capture of the multiple synchronized streams of sensor data. Precedent http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1579114.1579161
  23. 23. Drawing applications record traces of a user’s movements
  24. 24. Cabinet Setup
  25. 25. User Scenario
  26. 26. Integration with existing smart home technologies
  27. 27. Task Recognition & Determination of Intervention
  28. 28. Integration with RFID system
  29. 29. Could provide additional cues
  30. 30. Things to Consider • Depth is occluded. • Will surface allow sufficient shadow for video recording? • Projector inside of cabinet precludes additional storage. • Surface requires structural support, translucency, and food-grade material. • Cost could prohibit domestic use.
  31. 31. • Reaching out to Neuropsychologist • Attended ASSETS 2010 • Met Prof. Jesse Hoey (COACH, Ambient Kitchen) • Looking for an elder care facility with which to volunteer. Grounding in field
  32. 32. How will field testing and evaluation be conducted?
  33. 33. Thank you
