CogniWinProject Name: CogniWin

Funding ID: AAL-2013-6-114

Period: 01 May 2014 – 31 October 2016


CogniWin will primarily help older adults adapt cognitively with their tasks based on information collected implicitly through their interactions with the system (intelligent mouse interactions, eye tracking, navigation clicks) as well as explicitly provided personal and cognitive characteristics (e.g., well being issues, cognitive processing abilities). The Adaptive Support and Learning Assistant is a new mean for learning offered to the older adult workforce. Furthermore, CogniWin provides a smart advising tool delivering to the older adults personalized well-being guidance to improve their occupational lifestyle. The advisor considers personal well-being characteristics, and also light age related cognitive and physical limitations, like getting tired more easily. The CogniWin test-phase will involve two test beds for a total of 70 end users working in a highly computerized environment and who are dealing with complex tasks on a daily basis. The system is configured to be multilingual and to be adaptable to different IT environments.
