Title: Smart Condo: IoT for Social Good

The anticipated increase in the world population, people’s desire to live at home for as long as possible and the shortage of health-care professionals make the need to develop technological supports for people with chronic yet manageable conditions, to monitor and take care of their own health. The advancing wave of Internet-of-Things technologies holds immense promise to deliver such supports. In our work in the Smart-Condo project, we have been developing a sensor-based platform for non-intrusively monitoring people at home, analyzing the collected data to extract information about their activities, and generating support recommendations -- for themselves and their care-givers. We have been experimenting with a variety of living-at-home scenarios, and different sensor types and user interfaces. In this presentation, I will review the architecture of our platform, our research methodology, and our findings, and I will point out some interesting challenges for future research.


Eleni Stroulia (PhD, Georgia Tech 1994) is a Professor of Computing Science at the University of Alberta. Her research focuses on (a) developing methods and tools to support software-engineering activities, and (b) designing and deploying software-based solutions for real-world applications in health care, education, and knowledge work. She has supervised more than 50 graduate students, has co-authored over 200 publications, and has served in the organization of many international software-engineering conferences. From 2010 to 2016 he held a NSERC/AITF Industrial Research Chair on Service Systems Management (w. IBM support).
