Ciclo di seminari su Tecnologie Assistive

The seminar cycle Assistive Technology (AT) provides an introduction into devices, services, and platforms for people with physical and sensory disabilities, motor neuron diseases, and pervasive development disorders. As an example how methods and tools from Computer Science can be applied to AT, we will introduce the most mature European runtime platform UniversAAL. We will tackle several aspects of UniversAAL ranging from the middleware design through management of heterogeneous devices, actuators, and sensors to realization of (semantic) services. A demonstration of UniversAAL will round up this introduction.

Seminar Objectives

As part of this cycle, the students will

  • know state-of-the-art AT
  • develop an understanding for AT supports und services
  • get familiar with the main components and functionalities of an AT runtime platform
  • extract and present knowledge from scientific papers

Lecture Notes

The lectures will be every Thursday at 11:00 in Seminari EST.

  • 5/2/15: Seminar 3: “Autismo: tra clinica e tecnologia” - A. Narzisi (Stella Maris) - Abstract : L'Autismo è un disturbo del neurosviluppo che compromette le abilità socio-comunicative. Negli ultimi anni l'applicazione delle più avanzate soluzioni della Tecnologia dell’ Informazione e della Comunicazione (ICT) applicate all'autismo ha come obiettivo quello di esplorare nuove strategie nel campo della diagnosi e dell’ intervento nei Disturbi dello Spettro Autistico. Il miglioramento del processo diagnostico e l’adattamento continuo della terapia alle caratteristiche peculiari di ciascun bambino rimangono i cardini della collaborazione tra clinici ed esperti di ICT.
