The human face of ICT research: the GiraffPlus Project
Today the European Commission issued a press release on the GiraffPlus project, an EU project in which ISTC researchers play a relevant role.
The press release includes a video showing a success story from Italy: the GiraffPlus system installed in the home of Grandma Lea, a 94-year-old lady living on her own. The 4 minutes video titled "The human face of ICT research: the GiraffPlus Project" describes both the installation case and the technology developed in the project.
CNR participates in the GiraffPlus project with a joint ISTC and ISTI participation. Gabriella Cortellessa (ISTC) is the Project Technical Manager, furthermore CNR is leading three work-packages with Andrea Orlandini (ISTC), Francesco Furfari (ISTI) and Amedeo Cesta (ISTC).
