Designing a technology that detects falls in nursing homes and the homes of the elderly

Over 25% of individuals aged 65+ fall each year, but fewer than half report it to their doctor, increasing the risk of recurring falls.

For this reason, experts consider using them as DNA IDs in government databases for registration, verification, and access control.

AI researcher Martin Tamajka: “If we are to trust AI in courtrooms, it needs to justify its decisions.”

AI is transforming jobs across a wide range of industries. However, there are still concerns about using it extensively when people's lives or futures are at risk, such as in medicine or law. In these cases, it's not enough for AI to just produce an answer – it also needs to be able to explain how it came up with that answer.
