07462 Summary – Assisted Living Systems - Models, Architectures and Engineering Approaches

Jürgen Nehmer, Thomas Kleinberger, Arthur I. Karshmer, Hartmut Raffler, Gerhard Tröster
The Dagstuhl seminar on Assisted Living Systems (Seminar 07462) took place in November 2007 (14.11.2007 – 17.11.2007). The seminar was attended by more than 40 specialists from 14 nations and 5 continents. The key question was, if assistive technologies based on computer-based Ambience Intelligence Technology can help to substantially extend the period of self-determined life for elderly people. Assisted living systems were discussed from three different viewpoints: the medical/psychologists

From 11.11. to 17.11.2007, the Dagstuhl Seminar 07462 "Assisted Living Systems - Models, Architectures and Engineering Approaches" was held in the International Conference and Research Center (IBFI), Schloss Dagstuhl. During the seminar, several participants presented their current research, and ongoing work and open problems were discussed. Abstracts of the presentations given during the seminar as well as abstracts of seminar results and ideas are put together in this paper. The first section

Assisting age related capabilities by ambient technology to prevent functional decline

Mehmet Gövercin¹, Richard Willmann², Gerd Lanfermann², Tobias Kraft¹, Stefan Mix¹, Elisabeth Steinhagen-Thiessen¹
The elderly is characterized by age related capabilities and handicaps. Whereas age related capabilities like plasticity and adaptability on changing living conditions can lead to subjective well-being and support the recovery of limiting conditions like disease and disability, age related handicaps can enforce these conditions. Multimorbidity can lead to acute and chronic functional decline, especially when limiting conditions are enforced by age related handicaps. In a "circulus vitiosus"

Ambient Technology has the potential to interrupt this "circulus vitiosus" by limiting age related handicaps, assist age related capabilities, prevent acute or chronic diseases and as a consequence can improve the quality of life of elderly and their care giving relatives. In this overview we demonstrate a brief summary of past experience with Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as part of Ambient Technology (AT) in the "TeleReha" project and ongoing approaches in the "Vitanet" project and the "FOG-1" project followed by a future considerations conducting ICT-Project in elderly. 1 ICT approaches for elderly Ambient technologies are technical solutions that work together in an adaptive and interactive environment assisting people in their daily life with individual needs. Addressing an important item of ambient technology, we conducted an observational study "TeleReha-Development, Implementation and Evaluation of Technical Support in Geriatric Rehabilitation and Care" funded by the Deutsche Telekom GmbH" that fills the communication gap of elderly people [1] [2]. Videophones, internet resources, and multimedia computers were used for linking social workers, psychologists, physicians and specialized services with elderly people. Instant and personalized access to health care services followed by an interventional approach can avoid functional decline and severe illness. However, it is not clear whether Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings 07462 Assisted Living Systems-Models, Architectures and Engineering Approaches

Due to the ubiquitous nature of mobile devices, they are now considered as an emerging platform for facilitating both teaching and learning experiences. In this paper, we presented a tailored mobile learning system, namely the Integrated English and Programming Language Learning System (IEPLS), which aims at learning English vocabulary before studying programming language concepts. The IEPLS supports programming language learning in three ways; (a) Recommending to learn specific English

The IEPLS was used by one hundred and fifty undergraduate students for six months. Evaluation results revealed the attainment of IEPLS in supporting learners in learning programming languages backed by precise English vocabulary.
