Abstract – Telehealth and telecare are entering a new era following the principles of pervasive and ubiquitous computing, which are Decentralisation, Diversification, Connectivity and Simplicity. Novel applications are utilizing efficient processing for filtering the unnecessary data, employ context awareness and state of the art technologies such as Cloud/Edge Computing, Internet of Things (ΙοΤ), wearables and advanced sensors. In this talk we will discuss methodologies and tools for composing intelligent pervasive human-centered systems, which will be able to understand the human state in assistive environments using audiovisual and biological signals. The presented methodologies aim to offer advanced services for the support of aged/disabled/chronic patients, detection of critical situations from audiovisual content and biosignals analysis for the detection of pathology as well as for treatment follow-up. Human computer interaction (HCI) issues and modern approaches such as the gamification of chronic disease management will also be discussed.
