Exceptional Deep Intelligent Coach

Our increased life expectancy unfortunately goes hand in hand with an increased amount of years living with chronic conditions. These conditions cannot be cured, but both the development of comorbidities and the quality of life are strongly influenced by proper self-management and deploying a healthy lifestyle. In the EDIC project we bring in expertise in data mining, telemedicine, e-coaching, behavioral sciences and domain expertise in chronically ill patients, to develop a novel data-driven artificial coaching platform.
