The goal of the Interakt (interactive cognitive assessment tool) project is to improve the diagnostic process of dementia and other forms of cognitive impairments by digitising and digitalising standardised cognitive assessments. We aim at everyday procedures in hospitals (day clinics) and at home.

Most cognitive assessments used in medicine today are paper-pencil based. These tests are both expensive and time consuming. (A doctor, physiotherapist or psychologist conducts the assessments.) In addition, the results can be biased.

Through the use of smartpen technologies and mobile devices, multimodal multisensory data (e.g., speech and handwriting) are collected and evaluated.
We address the issue of what role automation could play in designing adaptive multimodal-multisensor technologies to support precise assessments; an online test environment will be developed.
