Alumnus built an innovative AI based personal assistant to help detect dangers to personal safety. The assistant engages in conversation with a person and evaluates the response to make an assessment.
A solution was needed to detect deviations from “normal” speech patterns of individuals due to the stress caused by potential threats in his / her external environment. These deviations would then be ratified to proactively identify threat situations and call for help.
The threats can originate from natural (fire, flood) or human (assailants, fugitives) causes, or from specialized scenarios such as medical emergencies and accidents in enclosed spaces.
