Spring 2005 Computational Intelligence Seminar Series

Presented by

Kevin Harris

  • Displaying a need: US demographic trends
  • Smart Homes
    • Goals, Vocabulary, Technology, Challenges, & Functions
  • Paper: The Smart House for Older Persons and Persons With Physical Disabilities: Structure, Technology, Arrangements, and Perspectives
  • Project Websites
displaying a need us demographic trends
In 2000, age 65+

35.0 million people

53% 65-74

35% 75-84

12% 85+

20.6 million women

14.4 million men

28% lived alone in households

Displaying a need: US demographic trends
displaying a need us demographic trends5
Displaying a need: US demographic trends
  • The elderly population will more than double between now and the year 2050, to 80 million.
  • About 1 in 5 US citizens (18.5%) will be elderly by 2030
  • Between 1990 and 2020, the population age 65 to 74 is estimated to grow 74 percent, while the population under age 65 will increase only 24 percent.
  • Most of this growth should occur between 2010 and 2030, when the "baby boom" generation enters their elderly years. During that period, the number of elderly will grow by an average of 2.8 percent annually.

Displaying a need: US demographic trends
  • The population 65 and over reported more disabilities: Self care, physical, sensory
  • Individuals older than 65 have four times the medical costs of younger Americans
  • Employee base working and paying taxes to finance Medicare is eroding: in 1980, 4.1 workers per beneficiary, in 2030, only 2.3:1
  • Net cash flow of the Medicare Hospital Insurance Trust Fund is expected to go into a deficit in 2016
  • Missouri is one of the twelve states withthe highest elderly population proportion (14% or more)

Smart Homes
  • Automated homes, Domotics, Networked Homes, Intelligent homes
  • Electrical devices used in the home to enhance the quality of life by providing more control over the user’s environment
  • Monitor Activities
  • Behavioral aspects
  • Design Considerations
smart home goals
Smart Home Goals
  • Contribute to a better quality of life by increasing self control, self esteem, and enabling self-fulfillment
  • Allow the elderly to remain independent in the home or age in place by making everyday life easier
  • Allow the home to adapt to the functional capabilities of the user
  • Use health monitoring for prevention and early intervention
  • Increase the efficiency of care services through the use of technology to provide care to people within their local environment
  • Improve social environment

Smart Home Technology
  • Challenges
    • Most systems have closed architectures
    • Most systems are supported by one manufacturer
    • A lack of standards for communication and interoperability to allow for plug and play
    • Creating a modular system that makes it easy to add/remove components, maintain, and update
    • Privacy and Security
