The impact of demographic change rises the awareness of society for the opportunities in digital health and care. This is also reflected by the European strategy for the transformation of healthcare in the Digital Single Market. Active and Assisted Living (AAL) and digital care are of great importance for DIGITAL, which is shown by numerous research projects with renowned partners in health and care. The institute DIGITAL is since many years a leading ICT innovation partner for digital health and care applications, focusing on Active and Assisted Living, e.g. AAL test regions, IoT, social robotics, virtual reality and neurodegenerative diseases and mental health, e.g. serious games for persons with dementia, human factors lab, affective computing and with sound methodological competences in artificial intelligence, machine learning, medical imaging, and decision support.
