Report: NESTORE meets the International Silver Economy community in Japan!

We are proud and thrilled to share with you that NESTORE was among the finalists of the second edition of the International Silver Economy Awards that took place in Tokyo, Japan from the 11th to the 15th of June 2019! 

Our partner PhD Francesco Carrino from the University of Applied Science in Switzerland travelled all the way to the "Land of the Rising Sun" to represent the consortium and pitch the project in front of Silver Economy actors coming from all around the globe, from France to Brazil.

This was a wonderful opportunity to develop synergies with stajeholders in the sector. Among them, one of the International Silver Economy Awards winner, Henrik Hautop Lund, from Danemark showed great interest for NESTORE, which could nicely integrate his initiative as a gamified intervention within the physical domain for balance and aerobic activity, for instance. That's a story to be continued, then...

Report: NESTORE decision-support system presented at the IEEE CBMS 2019

Early June, NESTORE decision-support system was presented at the 32th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems. Our partner Paula Subías-Beltrán, e-Health researcher for Eurecat, reports.

Following the presentation of NESTORE decision-support system, participants raised concerned about the intrusiveness of the system, thus questionning how it might impact the market uptake of the solution. Yet they were eager to see if the usage of all collected data would increase users' engagement. They liked the idea of using a recommender system that intents to adapt to users and assure diversity at the same time as it tailors users' coaching.

The congress was gathering a wide scope of other European projects' participants. Many of them shared topics also addressed by NESTORE and stressed similar hurdles in terms of data integration. One of them, the BigO project, was presented by Prof. Anastasios Delopoulos. The project is using big data to tackle childhood obesity. Prof. Delopoulos, he explained how they depicted users' nutritional profile, and commented on practicalities such as: how to measure the size of a dish and how to identify eating cycles.
