Hey grandma, I don’t like your behavioral pattern!
Adam Curry brought up the GE QuietCare system which is a platform of networked servers and sensors configured to monitor the patterns of seniors in assisted care facilities. It learns the patterns of when the subject is awake, opening and closing cupboards and the refrigerator. If the monitored person does something something out of their ‘normal’ pattern, it alerts the staff!
Great story at Fast Company.
