Event details

Ambient intelligence refers to a digital environment that proactively supports people in their daily lives. It is an emerging discipline that brings intelligence to our living environments, makes those environments sensitive to us, and adapts according to the user's needs.

This lecture will provide a review of the technologies and environments that comprise ambient intelligence, as well as how changes in the environment are reflected in the overall design of an adaptive ambient intelligence environment.

Biography
Dr Ahmad Lotfi is a reader in computational intelligence and is leading the research group in computational intelligence and applications.

His research interest is mainly in the areas of computational intelligence, ambient intelligence and natural computing. Specific areas of interest include learning fuzzy systems, neuro-computing, sensors network, adaptive systems, data mining and intelligent mobile robot navigation strategies.

He has extensive research in ambient assisted living. The aim of his research is to design an unobtrusive Activities of Daily Living monitoring system using wireless sensors to allow identification and prediction of abnormal behaviour. The work conducted so far is part of a vision in intelligent environments whereby unobtrusive measurements from the environment help the occupant – primarily elderly and patients suffering from Dementia.
