SCC INNOVATION HUB & LIVING LAB: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO IMPROVE CITIZENS’ QUALITY OF LIFE IN THE CITIES OF THE FUTURE
The cities of the future will be increasingly connected to our well-being, and Artificial Intelligence will be the tool that allows us to improve the quality of our daily lives.
SCC Innovation Hub & Living Lab is a project of excellence recognised by Regione Lombardia. Its aim is to design, develop and collect data in order to define a super-technological integrated ecosystem capable of assisting citizens and improving their lifestyle in a society and urban environments that are constantly changing.
Over the next 30 months, an Innovation Hub and a network of associated Living Labs will be set up and located in different contexts, from university campuses to large corporate headquarters and healthcare facilities, and will represent a technology platform that harnesses the potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G to collect data from individual sensors, wearable medical devices, environmental sensors, data from applications and software, open data, satellite imagery and data generated by statistical analysis and complex predictive models.
In particular, ComfTech will apply textile sensors in different areas. The opportunities for improvement and evolution that will result from this project will therefore be manifold, here are some areas in which they will become an essential support:
• the independence of the elderly, which will be connected with urban services related to health and well-being;
• eating habits, in connection with food delivery and catering services;
• physical activity and lifestyle improvement in terms of preventive medicine;
• improving the walkability of cities;
• the protection of women’s safety;
• improving lifestyles in the home and work environment.
The experimentation will make it possible to identify possible scenarios and anticipate innovation phenomena to support the cities and citizens of tomorrow.
The project is led by Mediaclinics S.r.l. and its partners are ComfTech S.r.l, Università degli Studi di Bergamo, Italtel S.p.A., Reply S.p.A., Marlegno S.r.l., Orobix S.r.l., Aries More S.r.l
