Streamingservice for memories
We know by now that images have impact on people who are coping with dementia. The right image can spark a long forgotten memory and will bring a moment of clearity with people who can not easily acces their past. For a moment they are father, mother, spouse, grandma or grandpa again.
In cooperation with De Herbergier in the city of Harlingen, a home for people suffering neurodegenerative diseases like dementia, we are developing the first version of our streamingservice to help recall personal memories. The challenge is, using a personal profile as a basis, to create an algorithm that will couple the right image to a personal profile.
At the moment we are doing this on a local scale in the Netherlands. We want to help people to spark their memories worldwide starting 2021
How it started
What is the value of a memory?
Images speak a thousand words.
When he returned from Australia Fokko was invited to tell his story on Dutch national television. After the recording was broadcast he received so many requests to visit elderly homes across the nation to come and bring the same service. Travelling the Netherlands, as small as the country may be, would be exhausting. So he approached moving that mountain differently.
He and his team decided to develop technologie that would make it possible for everyone to recall and spark lost memories.
