Research News /

Germany is facing major challenges in providing long-term inpatient care for those who need it. According to Statista, the number of people in need of care will increase by 50 percent by 2030. At the same time, the workforce is expected to decrease further over the next few years. AI-based, digital systems offer a way to tackle this challenge: In the »Care-Integrated Artificial Intelligence in the Professional Care Process« (ViKI pro) project, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM, together with their partners, enable specialists in the care sector to identify individual care needs and plan appropriate measures with the support of AI.
