Navigating Privacy in Healthcare tech for Senior Care, User Side of the Story

Abstract: Active and Assisted Living (AAL) technologies strive to enrich the quality of life of older adults and facilitate successful aging. While video-based AAL solutions offer rich capabilities for better healthcare management in older age, they pose significant privacy risks. In response to these challenges, the AMI4AHA (Ambient Intelligence for Active and Healthy Ageing) research team at the University of Alicante has developed a video-based monitoring system for senior care. The system incorporates various privacy-preserving filters to address the privacy risks effectively. The presenter aims to offer insights from the user perspective regarding such technologies. She will delve into her three-year research process, which focuses on comprehending the diverse perspectives of stakeholders involved in the caregiving and receiving process.
