2 Centre for Applied Internet Research Say ‘Aah’ for the Computer A look into Healthcare technologies of the future Dr Rich Picking Reader in Human-Computer Interaction Centre for Applied Internet Research (CAIR) Glyndŵr University, Wales

3 Centre for Applied Internet Research Overview A bit about me I teach Master’s level futurology Chair BCS Health in WalesBCS Health Chair BCS HCI4WELL workshop Background: the ‘demographic time bomb’ The future How can we predict the future? Future applications Q and A

4 Centre for Applied Internet Research The ‘demographic timebomb’ Populations distributions are changing We are living longer We are having fewer children This trend is set to continue Who will care for all the people?

5 Centre for Applied Internet Research The difference United Nations Population Division, World Population Prospects

6 Centre for Applied Internet Research The implications for healthcare in the UK. 1.Office for National Statistics, Royal Commission Report into Long Term Care, 1999.

7 Centre for Applied Internet Research It’s not easy to predict the future!

8 Centre for Applied Internet Research The World in 2030 (Ray Hammond, 2007) “There will be a revolution in healthcare which will dramatically extend human life spans. A combination of gene-based therapies, stem cell medicine and molecular-nanotechnology will introduce a new model of medical science which will prevent disease from occurring and will offer significant life extension and even physical and mental rejuvenation (at least for the wealthy people in the developed world). A child born in 2030 will have a life expectancy of 130 years (at the point of his or her birth) and, long before they reach old age they will be offered rejuvenation treatments to maintain their biological age at thirty or forty years old, no matter what their chronological age.”

9 Centre for Applied Internet Research Kurzweil’s prediction of ‘singularity’ (singularity.com)

10 Centre for Applied Internet Research Moore’s second ‘law’

11 Centre for Applied Internet Research Monitoring activities of daily living: ADlife

12 Centre for Applied Internet Research Telehealth will take care out of surgeries and hospitals

13 Centre for Applied Internet Research Research at Glyndwr: The Easyline+ Project

14 Centre for Applied Internet Research Easy Line+ project - Low-cost advanced white goods for a longer independent life of elderly people. Funded under the Ambient Assisted Living section of the IST component of the EU framework 6 programme (2.3m Euros) Objective: To develop a range of advanced white goods, near to market, to support elderly people with or without disabilities maintain a longer independent life, in their own home. Consortium Partners: University of Zaragoza, BSH (Bosch/Siemens), G2V Grupo de Empresas, Motivate Technology, Glyndŵr University.

15 Centre for Applied Internet Research Example Easyline+ Interaction The hob has been left on with no pan on it. The message is conveyed to the user:

16 Centre for Applied Internet Research More Scenarios Fridge / Freezer:  Comments on what goes in and out.  Warns about expired products.  Warns if door is left open. Oven:  Automatically chooses appropriate cooking settings, temperature and duration.  Informs the user when the food is ready.  Automatically switches off when food is ready. Washing machine:  Warns if wrong mix of colours or wrong mix of fabrics.  Automatically chooses appropriate washing programme  Validates levels of detergent and softener.  Informs user when washing cycle has finished. Hobs:  Warns if pan is left on a switched-on hob  Warns if detection of excessive heat in inappropriate areas

17 Centre for Applied Internet Research User Interface User interfaces situated in modified familiar home devices: Television Sets – Central point of control.  Results from initial user surveys and narrative workshops helped form this decision. Interactive Digital Photo Frames.  Can be positioned in any room of the home for immediate notification. Mobile Devices.  Can be used for emergencies and in the garden, for example.  Although not popular with current generation of elderly people, this is changing quickly.

18 Centre for Applied Internet Research SCUFF Design Principles Simplicity Consistency Universality Familiarity Flexibility These principles informed the design decision for device interaction to be based on the red, green, yellow and blue buttons on a remote control.

19 Centre for Applied Internet Research Usability lab at Glyndwr University

20 Centre for Applied Internet Research Usability evaluation Situation nameDescription Coming home with shopping Some items of food are to be placed in the fridge. The fridge door is accidentally left open and the participants are notified of this fact. A reminder is sent to them if the fridge door remains open for a given time. Doing my laundry A clothes washing exercise is undertaken. However, there is a mix of whites and coloured clothing. The participants are warned that this might cause a problem and are asked to deal with the situation. My laundry is done The washing cycle has just finished. The participants are informed of this event and are reminded if they do not unload the washing machine. Making dinnerSome food is baked in the oven. Participants are informed when the cooking is finished and the food is ready.
