Title: Towards Artificially Intelligent Devices in Managing People with Neurological Disorders
Abstract: In recent years the world has not seen a large number of people with neurological disorders. In case of many prevalent ones, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Alzheimer's Disease, and Parkinson’s Disease, along with regular medication, the health status monitoring of the sufferer is a unique way to assist them in their daily activities, when required. While the world is falling short in providing personalised support to these people through carers, thanks to intelligent and innovative solutions, the management of such people is now possible. The talk will shed lights on how persons with such incurable diseases can be assisted in their daily routines through AI-enabled devices.
