Affective computing system responds to dementia patient emotions

SenseCare (Sensor Enabled Affective Computing for Enhancing Medical Care) is a Cork Institute of Technology led project meant to teach computers how to recognize and respond to human emotions.  The goal is to use applied psychology to monitor and improve the care of dementia patients.

The affective computing based system will manage data from voice and face recognition systems, and wearables that measure health, wellness, and activity levels. The open platform’s goal is “full emotional analytics” and will work with companion robots and other technologies to manage care.
