Sedentariness is related to many health problems and diseases. The sedentary lifestyle is closely related to the current obesity epidemic, which is a major health problem, with increasing incidence in the younger population. The objective of DAPHNE project is to develop a state-of-the-art breakthrough ICT platform for reducing sedentariness and unhealthy habits, based on data-as-a-service and personalised services, providing the necessary organisational, security and business models for the exploitation of project results.
The DAPHNE platform will deliver personalized guidance services for lifestyle management to the citizen/patient by means of (i) advanced sensors and mobile phones to acquire and store data on lifestyle aspects, behaviour and surrounding environment, (ii) individual models to monitor their health and fitness status, (iii) intelligent data processing for the recognition of behavioural trends and (iv) specific services for personalized guidance on healthy lifestyle and disease prevention. DAPHNE platform will be open to hardware and software developers, providing data for different personalised health services, both at the citizen and service provider side.
At the same time, data generated by end-users will be available in an anonymous and secure way for other stakeholders, like health insurance companies, public/private health companies, research, etc. which will be able to use it for orientation in their business. The paradigm Data-as-a-Service, as an evolution of Software-as-a-Service, will be used for data publication and consumption, taking into account relevant security and anonymity aspects, and enabling new business ecosystems and models that will be fully exploited before
and after the finalization of the project.
