Ambient intelligence

As the Nancy – Grand Est Research Center scientific strategy pushes the development of plateforms on Robotics and Smart Living Apartments, some members of the team have recentered their research toward “ambient intelligence and AI” . This choice is backed up by the Inria Large-scale initiative project termed PAL (Personal assistant Living) in which we are strongly involved. The regional council of Lorraine also supports this new research line through the CPER, (project "situated computing" or "INFOSITU" ) whose coordinator is a member of MAIA Team. Within this new domain of research in MAIA, we explore how intelligent decentralized complex systems can help designing intelligent environments dedicated to elderly people with loss of autonomy. This domain of research is currently very active, taking up a societal challenge that developed countries have to address.
