Description: The Elder Care Project intends to introduce the technology to families with their elderly members and later to provide the technology to nursing homes and senior living communities. The Artificial Intelligence Center (AI Center) at the Asian Institute of Technology works in collaboration with the Faculty of Physical Therapy at Thailand’s Mahidol University to apply AI to monitor seniors’ activities, identify movement irregularities, estimate the possibility of falling, and alert caregivers before and during the fall. This can potentially reduce the impact of the fall and subsequent injuries as family members or caregivers can tend to the seniors in a timely manner and limit their medical and social costs.
