Clone of CPHM Brainstorming Session: AI-Enhanced Technology Related to Alzheimer’s and Aging

The Center for Personalized Health Monitoring invites faculty to attend CPHM brainstorming sessions focused on potential pilot projects and collaborative research opportunities related to the Massachusetts AI & Technology Center for Connected Care in Aging & Alzheimer’s Disease (MassAITC: https://massaitc.org). The MassAITC is a multidisciplinary National Institute of Aging (NIA) P30 Research Collaboratory spanning five sites – the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Brandeis University and Northeastern University. The Center aims to foster multidisciplinary research on the development, validation and translation of emerging AI-enhanced technologies to more effectively support healthy aging and the care of patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease Related Dementias (AD/ADRD) in their home environments.  


The MassAITC will soon be issuing a call for pilot proposals to support pilot studies on wearables, contactless sensors, emerging AI and related technologies that have the potential to improve interactions between older adults,  caregivers, and clinicians with the ultimate goal of supporting successful aging at home. For the upcoming year, the MassAITC will fund roughly 15 pilots, most with a budget of $100,00 in direct costs for a year.

Expected deadline for proposals: January 2022.
