The goal of the Interakt (interactive cognitive assessment tool) project is to improve the diagnostic process of dementia and other forms of cognitive impairments by digitising and digitalising standardised cognitive assessments. We aim at everyday procedures in hospitals (day clinics) and at home.
Interakt (2017-2020) is a BMBF project based on Kognit.
To identify interface design principles that most effectively support automatic digital assessments by multisensory monitoring and automatic multimodal feedback.
At the computational level, it will be important to investigate approaches to designing systems that recognize and model patients’ cognitive and affective states.
At the interface level, it will be important to devise design principles that can inform the development of innovative multimodal-multisensor interfaces for a variety of patient populations, test contexts, and learning environments.
Most cognitive assessments used in medicine today are paper-pencil based. These tests are both expensive and time consuming. (A doctor, physiotherapist or psychologist conducts the assessments.) In addition, the results can be biased.
Through the use of smartpen technologies and mobile devices, multimodal multisensory data (e.g., speech and handwriting) are collected and evaluated.
We address the issue of what role automation could play in designing adaptive multimodal-multisensor technologies to support precise assessments; an online test environment will be developed.
