SEOUL, Aug. 6 (Korea Bizwire) — The Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) has developed an artificial intelligence (AI)-based service platform to share knowledge on the symptoms of dementia patients and how to care for them.
Based on an ontology model, which refers to technology in which AI understands and processes human knowledge, the KIST compiled knowledge of how to care dementia patients, their living environment, medical knowledge and the information on dementia patients and people around them.
After collecting dementia care knowledge through interviews with dementia care workers, the KIST used the collected knowledge to improve the accuracy of the ontology model.
The institute also applied an inference system that recommends customized care methods on the basis of users’ questions.
The research team developed a graphical user interface to make the platform available through personal PCs or portable smart devices.
“This platform can be used for the AI technology-based care services using robots or chatbots. We expect the platform to contribute to reducing the burden of dementia care,” said Lim Yoon-seob, the senior researcher at KIST who led the project.
