Cognitive Assistance to Meal Preparation: Design, Implementation, and Assessment in a Living Lab

AAAI Conferences

This paper first sketches a living lab infrastructure installed in an alternative housing unit built to host 10 people with traumatic brain injury. It then presents the first research project in progress within this living lab. This interdisciplinary project aims at designing, implementing, deploying, and assessing a personalized assistive technology (PAT). Based on the needs and expectations expressed by the residents, their caregivers and their families, a cooking assistant appeared as one of the best suited PAT to foster residents autonomy and social participation. The resulting PAT will rely on pervasive computing and ambient intelligence. It will then be personalized according to each participant's capacities and specific cognitive impairments. The impact of the assistant on autonomy and quality of life will then be measured. The overall organizational impact of such assistive technology will be also documented and evaluated.

President Biden late Tuesday approved a major disaster declaration for areas affected by the Dixie and River fires in Northern California, opening up federal funding for grants, temporary housing, repairs and other relief efforts as multiple blazes continue to sweep across the Golden State. The action makes federal funding available to affected residents in Lassen, Nevada, Placer and Plumas counties, according to a statement by the White House. The assistance will include grants to help individuals and business owners recover from the fires. Federal funding is also available to state, tribal and eligible local governments, as well as to some nonprofit organizations, for emergency protective measures, according to the statement. Money will also be available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures across California. Damage assessments are ongoing in other areas of the state, the White House said.
