AIDE Project kick-off meeting

AIDE Project kick-off meeting

AIDE Project kick-off meeting was celebrated this week.  The project goes beyond the current state of the art in using a novel modular multimodal perception system to customize an adaptive multimodal interface towards disabled people needs. The multimodal interface will analyse and extract relevant information from the identification of residual abilities, behaviours, emotional state and intentions of the user, from analysis of the environment and from context factors. Finally, the humanEmachine cooperative system will be designed in accordance with specific user needs. A series of applications for the AIDE system have been identified across several domains in which disabled people could greatly benefit.

The event was divided in two parts, first one was a workshop about assistive technologies. The program was:
