Samsung Electronics has earned several prestigious honors at the Cannes Lions International festival of creativity 2015 for several creative projects, including:

This video presents [Look At Me] Introducing the Interactive Camera App for Children with Autism (short ver.).
- Backup Memory: A smartphone app that functions as a memory stimulator for those exhibiting early signs of Alzheimer’s. The app helps patients become aware of their immediate surroundings by identifying nearby family members and friends, and also reminds patients about their relationship with each person and memories they’ve shared in the past through photographs and videos. Furthermore, the app provides the patient with a notification in real time when a related person gets close to the patient as shown in the video below.

Backup Memory is available in two languages – English and French – and can be downloaded through Google Play.
However, this isn’t the last of Backup Memory. Azer and his colleagues are working on upgrading the app, adding additional features and brushing up the user interface. One of those features is expected to rely on a smartphone’s GPS signal to provide family members with the real-time location of their loved ones.
“Backup Memory is not exactly a technological breakthrough, but it is definitely a good use of existing technology,” said Azer. “We are satisfied with the progress so far, but we’d like to do more. There is so much good you can do with technology, and I’d like to think that we’re just getting started.”
