SafelyYou, a startup emanating from CITRIS seed-funding, uses AI-enabled camera systems to detect, in real time, falls of individuals with dementia. “The sooner we can find out that they are falling, figure out how they are falling, and put protection in place, the better the chances of preventing them from needing to go to the emergency room,” says founder and CEO George Netscher.
Stemmed from UC Berkeley’s AI Research Lab – one of the top 5 AI research groups in the world.

CITRIS and the Banatao Institute leverage the research strengths of University of California campuses at Berkeley, Davis, Merced and Santa Cruz, and operate within the greater ecosystem of the University and the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of Silicon Valley. The institute was created by the California state legislature to shorten the pipeline between world-class laboratory research and the development of applications, platforms, companies, and even new industries. CITRIS and the Banatao Institute facilitate interdisciplinary work among hundreds of University of California faculty members, students, corporate partners, and international institutions. Together with these public and private partners, are shaping the future of technology in ways that cross traditional boundaries.
