The current project is part of a larger H2020 project with the aim to help elderly office workers to a healthier and more productive work life. SmartWork brings together a highly skilled and complementary consortium of ten expert organisations from across 8 countries, including the research group COIN at the Department of Information and Comput-er Science, Linköping University. SmartWork has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 re-search and innovation programme under grant agree-ment No 826343. The three-year project began on 01 January 2019. Linköping University’s (COIN-LiU) part of the overarching SmartWork project concerns development of Deep Neural Networks (DNN), for modelling the cognitive processes of elderly workers, and based on this, estimating the cognitive state of elderly office workers. This estimate will be used for coaching and decision support for these workers.
