I'm happy to announce that the simon listens team will attend this years ambient assisted living forum in Odense, Denmark!
The AAL Forum (15th-17th September) is an annual event as part of the Ambient Assisted Living Joint Program of the European Union. The main goal of this program is to improve everyday live for healthy seniors.
While this might not sound as the most exciting topic at first, this is a fast moving, exciting field of research that covers everything from home automation to assistive robotics.
We will be represented through a booth in the exhibition hall and Franz Stieger, our chairman, will give both a short introductory talk simon listens and another one about the project in the context of robotics enabled assisted living.
It isn't all work and no play, tough. In the spirit of the conference an internationally proclaimed 69 year old DJ called Ruth flowers will apparently rock the the social event of the conference. I can't wait to see that :)
