RadioMe

ICCMR’s EPSRC-funded project RadioMe is aimed at developing broadcasting technology to improve the lives of people suffering from dementia. Given the popularity of radio among the age group most likely to be living with dementia, we are developing a way to seamlessly ‘remix’ live digital broadcast so that listeners will receive personalised reminders, information and music. Using sensors to measure physical signs like heart rate, as well as wireless speakers and an Internet connection, RadioMe output will be produced in users’ homes by AI software to be created at ICCMR. The RadioMe project is developed in partnership with University of Glasgow, Anglia Ruskin University, Alzheimer’s Society, BBC Radio Devon, MHA Care, Bauer Media and CereProc.
