A fuzzy ambient intelligent agents approach for monitoring disease progression of dementia patients

Faiyaz Doctor, Rahat Iqbal, Raouf N. G. Naguib
2012 Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Humanized Computing  
For each sensor group intelligent agents are used to learn fuzzy rules, which model the patient's habitual behaviours in the environment.  ...  We also show an example of how the user's perceptions for thermal comfort may be captured and visualised to provide a means by which micro-level perception changes can be monitored.  ...  In this paper, we propose an ambient intelligent system which could be deployed in a home-based environment to monitor and track the disease progression of dementia patients, see Figure 1 .  ...
