Smart watches equipped with advanced AI will monitor your every move
AI Watches that monitor and analyse virtually every move of the wearer could be used to prevent memory lapses for the elderly and track workers on an assembly line.
Scientists are working on an artificially intelligent (AI) system that takes the idea of activity tracking to a whole new level.
The new watches will know when a routine task, such as washing the dishes or brushing teeth, has been left undone and provide a “helpful” reminder.
They could serve as memory joggers for the elderly, promote healthy lifestyles, assist in health care, or aid rehabilitation after injury.
However, they could also be used to analyse consumer behaviour or track performance of factory workers, one of the researchers behind the invention admitted.
“This new method for activity discovery paints a far richer, more accurate, picture of daily human life.
“As well as for fitness and lifestyle trackers, this can be used in healthcare scenarios and in fields such as consumer behaviour research.”
