Project description

With funding from the Kempe Foundation, the project “Smart Personalized Medication Assistant” aims to stretch a multidisciplinary collaboration within the departments of Computing Science, Nursing and Integrative Medical Biology.

The overall purpose of the project is to design and develop a smart mixed reality support system for professional medication management. The project aims to contribute to enhance safe and resource-effective handling of medication for patients and health professionals. The project will introduce new tools of mixed reality for using in clinical settings. Moreover, the assessment of this emerging technology from an Artificial Intelligent trustworthy view will be explored during the project.

The postdoc is encouraged to bring his or her expertise and will get the opportunity to contribute to the development of new intelligent interactive systems by using technologies such as Microsoft Hololens 2.

The postdoc will have the opportunity to work in close collaboration with professionals in the healthcare domain, e.g. nurses, pharmacists and clinical settings.

The scholarship project is financed by the Kempe foundation. The scholarship is for two years with a starting date as agreed. The scholarship amounts to 350 000 SEK per year (around 34 000 euros). The scholarship is not subject to tax.
