Zero-Effort Technologies

release date: Mar 21, 2018
Zero-Effort Technologies
This book introduces zero-effort technologies (ZETs), an emerging class of technologies that require little or no effort from the people who use them. ZETs use advanced computing techniques, such as computer vision, sensor fusion, decision-making and planning, machine learning, and the Internet of Things to autonomously perform the collection, analysis, and application of data about the user and/or his/her context. This book begins with an overview of ZETs, then presents concepts related to their development, including pervasive intelligent technologies and environments, design principles, and considerations regarding use. The book discusses select examples of the latest in ZET development before concluding with thoughts regarding future directions of the field.

Zero Effort Technologies
This book introduces zero-effort technologies (ZETs), an emerging class of technology that requires little or no effort from the people who use it. ZETs use advanced techniques, such as computer vision, sensor fusion, decision-making and planning, and machine learning to autonomously operate through the collection, analysis, and application of data about the user and his/her context. This book gives an overview of ZETs, presents concepts in the development of pervasive intelligent technologies and environments for health and rehabilitation, along with an in-depth discussion of the design principles that this approach entails. The book concludes with a discussion of specific ZETs that have applied these design principles with the goal of ensuring the safety and well-being of the people who use them, such as older adults with dementia and provides thoughts regarding future directions of the field. Table of Contents: Lecture Overview / Introduction to Zero Effort Technologies / Designing ZETs / Building and Evaluating ZETs / Examples of ZETs / Conclusions and Future Directions
