Gaitkeeper project at Inisght DCU shortlisted for DatSci award

Gaitkeeper – Gait Biometrics Service for Healthcare, based in Insight@DCU, has been shortlisted for a DatSci award in the category ‘Best Use of Data Science/AI for Health and Well Being’.

The awards, which are designed to celebrate the data science ecosystem across Europe, will be held in Dublin this year, in Croke Park on September 5th.

Gaitkeeper is the worlds’ first system to provide gait analysis as a service - generating spatial and temporal gait analyses from video. Using state of the art computer vision, machine learning and user experience design GaitKeeper moves gait analysis out of the lab and into daily practice.

The project has been shortlisted alongside projects by IBM and the Environmental Protection Agency, among others.

This project falls under Prof Noel O'Connor, Aidan Boran, Haolin Wei, Lavleen Bhat and Shawna Johnston.
