Purpose and goal
Skellefteå Municipality and Aifloo have implemented a project to validate and further develop Aifloo Smartband - a self-learning AI-based e-health system for the needs of the home care service. Focus has been on user-friendliness for seniors, home care staff and organization. In the longer term, the aim has been to increase understanding of how new AI-based technologies can be implemented in home-based services for the benefits for individuals and society.
Expected results and effects
The project has resulted in a very clear & detailed view of user requirements, management & routines, technical requirements and what is needed for major-scale implementation within home care. Conversely, the possibilities of artificial intelligence-based innovative technologies for the care sector have been highlighted. The project has been unique in its kind and news about Aifloo´s AI-based technology for care services has been spreading both nationally and internationally during the year this project has been active.
Planned approach and implementation
Aifloo, together with Skellefteå Municipality, has evaluated an AI-based security system for seniors and home care staff. In the project, end-user impact has been dominant and essential. Correct AI-based technology can, if adapted to the needs of users and the business, play a major role in providing users with a customized security system and lead to an increased efficiency of home care service´s working methods compared to today´s methods.
