The project 'Adept and Adaption', involving Dr Saul Albert, Professor Elizabeth Stokoe (Social Sciences and Humanities), Professor Thorsten Gruber, Dr Crispin Coombs (Business and Economics), Professor Donald Hislop (Aberdeen University), and Mark Harrison (Social Action Solutions), is looking at how AI and social robotics could have a vital role in the delivery of health and social care services. The project studies how disabled people adapt consumer technology – including voice-controlled lights, power sockets, entertainment systems, and other smart devices – as accessible home automation systems.
