Title: Computational Behaviour Analysis for Assisted Living within Smart Homes
There is a growing ageing population, and along which there is an increasing prevalence of ageing-related physical, sensory and cognitive declines. Yet available healthcare resources are dwindling, and the gap between the need and demand is becoming ever wider, not only in the UK, China but worldwide. Will technology come to our rescue, and how? In this talk the speaker will discuss the global ageing problem and its impact on the quality of life, society and economy. He will introduce the technology-driven approach, dubbed as ambient assisted living, to addressing this challenge, in the context of smart home metaphor, and discuss the associated research topics. The speaker will then drill down a little bit deeper to focus on one of his research threads, i.e. activity recognition and behaviour analysis, followed by an introduction to a number of funded EU collaborative projects, in particular, the recently funded EU Horizon 2020 MSCA ACROSSING project. The speaker will discuss research challenges and trends, and further share his visions and insights into the future research and application.
Liming (Luke) Chen is Professor of Computer Science in the School of Computer Science and Informatics, De Montfort University, UK. He obtained his B.Eng. and M.Eng. from Beijing Institute of Technology, Beijing, China, and Ph.D in Artificial Intelligence from De Montfort University. His current research interests include activity context modelling and recognition, behaviour analysis, personalisation and adaptation of pervasive systems, decision support, smart environments and their application in smart homes and ambient assisted living. Liming has over 150 peer-reviewed publications, and has been awarded research funding from EU FP7, AAL, UK EPSRC, NI DEL as well as industrial partners. He is the coordinator of the recently funded EU Horizon2020 ACROSSING project with €3.88M funding and 26 partners across Europe. He has served as a general chair or program chair for IEEE UIC2016, IntelliSys2016, SAI2013/2015, UCAMI2013, IWAAL2014, and MoMM2013/2014, associate editor of IEEE THMS, assistant EIC for IJPCC and guest editors for IEEE THMS, PMC and IJDSN.
