Active Ageing aims to foster a physically, mentally and socially active lifestyle as a person ages. It is a complex, multi-faceted problem that involves a variety of different actors, such as policy makers, doctors, care givers, family members, friends and, of course, older adults. This review aims to understand the role of a new actor, which increasingly plays the role of enabler and facilitator, i.e., that of the technology provider. The review specifically focuses on Information Technology IT...

Background: Reaction time, coordination, and cognition performance typically diminish in older adults, which may lead to gait impairments, falls, and injuries. Regular strength–balance exercises are highly recommended to reduce this problem and to improve health, well-being, and independence in old age. However, many older people face a lack of motivation in addition to other strong barriers to exercise. We developed ActiveLifestyle, an information technology (IT)-based system for active and hea...

Aging deteriorates cognitive and physical abilities. Besides this, social activities decline in older ages. However, it is possible to slow down the deterioration of these abilities and to prolong the time elders live independently at their homes by proper training plan exercises. Existing tools offer very limited support as their design does not take into account elders as target users and the motivational factors that following training plans poses on them. In this paper we present a unified p...

Assessing whether a company’s business practices conform to laws and regulations and follow standards and SLAs, i.e., compliance management, is a complex and costly task. Few software tools aiding compliance management exist; yet, they typically do not address the needs of who is actually in charge of assessing and understanding compliance. We advocate the use of a compliance governance dashboard and suitable root cause analysis techniques that are specifically tailored to the needs of complianc...

The platform leverages the data stored in a typical personal health record, augmenting it with environmental and sensor data and enabling the monitoring and analysis of an individual's habits. Sharing habits and advice with doctors and friends empowers individuals to become wellness cop...

In response to recent financial scandals (e.g. those involving Enron, Fortis, Parmalat), new regulations for protecting the society from financial and operational risks of the companies have been introduced. Therefore, companies are required to assure compliance of their operations with those new regulations as well as those already in place. Regulations are only one example of compliance sources modern organizations deal with every day. Other sources of compliance include licenses of business p...

It is significant for companies to ensure their businesses conforming to relevant policies, laws, and regulations as the consequences of infringement can be serious. Unfortunately, the divergence and frequent changes of different compliance sources make it hard to systematically and quickly accommodate new compliance requirements due to the lack of an adequate methodology for system and compliance engineering. In addition, the difference of perception and expertise of multiple stakeholders invol...

Automatically monitoring and enforcing compliance of service-based business processes with laws, regulations, standards, contracts, or policies is a hot issue in both industry and research. Little attention has however been paid to the problem of understanding non-compliance and improving business practices to prevent non-compliance in the future, a task that typically still requires human interpretation and intervention. Building upon work on automated detection of non-compliant situations, in ...
