Privacy-Aware and Acceptable Video-Based Technologies and Services for Active and Assisted Living

Project description

Privacy protection for active and assisted living services

The ageing population represents a crucial health and social challenge with relative economic impacts due to the increasing provision of care. The innovation introduced by Active and Assisted Living (AAL) solutions addresses social and healthcare demands while taking advantage of the economic opportunities offered by the Silver Economy. However, some of these solutions make use of smart cameras, raising concerns over privacy protection. The EU-funded visuAAL project aims to address the gap between users’ requirements and the adequate and safe use of video-based AAL technologies to deliver supportive care to older people. The project will increase insight and understanding of the ethical, legal, privacy and societal issues of visual systems installed in hospitals, homes and community sites to improve older adults' protection.
