The goal of the Laboratory for Assisted Cognition Environments (LACE) is to create advanced computer systems that will enhance the quality of life of people suffering from cognitive disabilities.  This interdisciplinary project combines computer science research in artificial intelligence and ubiquitous computing with clinical research on patient care.  Assisted Cognition systems are proactive memory and problem solving aids that help an individual perform the tasks of day-to-day life.
