Alzheimer’s is a frustrating disease. I’ve had friends who couldn’t remember their names, much less where they lived. Six in ten people with dementia will wander and become lost. Emergency first responders are often called in for search-and-rescue missions. If not found within 24 hours, half of the wanderers will be seriously injured or die. Now we can use algorithms and the common behaviours of these lost people, and program drones to help us find them more quickly.
