Scope:

According to the United Nations, 2 billion persons over the age of 60 are projected to be alive by 2050, implying a rapid increment in dementia and other age-related disabilities. Moreover, the World Health Organization (WHO) indicates that the world ratio of disabilities and impairment cases will also augment due to the rapid growing of the population in less developed regions. Finally, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) warns about future shortages of available health workers and doctors. By joining the previous three factors we get a new situation in which the world needs “extra” help for facing health and medical related problems.

Quality of Life (QoL) technologies have emerged as the concept of applying findings from different technological areas to assist people in their daily life activities, and to help health workers, caregivers, and doctors in their tasks. It is of particular interests the QoL technologies based on artificial intelligence.
