Mobile Prescription

Medical prescriptions are confusing for the most part. At the same time keeping track of the medicine/drugs someone has to take is a bit troublesome (before/after lunch; morning/evening etc.).

Develop a mobile app which notify the patient when it is time to take his medicine/drugs or help him order new ones when he finishes the current ones. The application will notify if there is a conflict between the medicine he is taking or between known allergies a patient might have.

Prescription medicine can also be taken but only with the doctors consent (implement a cryptographic module in the application to handle this feature).

What to wear today app

Some people find it hard to find the right clothes they need for an event (formal dinner, job interview etc.) especially with what they have in their closet. An application which helps you pick the right clothes for any occasion based on what you have in your closet (don’t have the right clothes – gives you shopping/renting options nearby), what you previously like to wear and fits your style. The application might give you suggestions on what colour or clothes (pants + jacket) combination to wear (depending on the occasion, weather, season etc.).

Shopping recommendations based on the season and sales available in each shop could be features available in such an application.

Bonus: Using semantic web technologies to develop this application.

Patient Eye Tracking Interface

Due to the large number of patients with various motor and speech impediments or paralysis, the medical staff has developed a system that helps them communicate with these kinds of patients. The system is based on the movement of a patient’s eyes and eyelids. For example, the medical staff wants to determine where the pain is on a patient’s body. The patients using eye or eyelid movement can answer a series of questions addressed by the medical staff.
