Lucy is Head of Innovation at Albyn Housing Society Ltd, and has over 20 years experience within the social housing sector. Her background is in Urban Policy and Innovation. Recently she has been leading the technology side of a multi-agency City Region Deal innovation project in partnership with NHS Highland to develop a technology enabled homes test bed within the social housing sector. The aim is to create homes where ambient technology supports individuals to live independently as long as it is safe from them to do so, while enabling support and intervention from family, friends, carers and health professionals at appropriate times based on data driven alerts and algorithms. The data created by the project will support the development of health, housing and care solutions which will be developed through a social business model. The model aims to enable access to innovative health and care solutions by those most in need, directly targeting health inequality, while simultaneously supporting public health and wellbeing. The project has a number of research partners working on AI, 5G, and data management.
