Ethical aspects in the design of AAL systems

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference articleScientific

Abstract

This presentation gives guidance on ethical issues that should be taken into account when designing applications and services that utilise MINAmI platform for mobile-centric Ambient Intelligence. The guidelines also cover issues related to implementing the MINAmI platform itself. The guidelines are divided to impact on design solutions: what kinds of solutions are ethically acceptable and impact on design process: how to design ethically acceptable solutions. Impact of ethical principles on design solutions is analysed on two levels: 1) general technical features of mobile AmI and impact of ethical principles on them and 2) impact of ethical principles on application field specific features of mobile AmI. In the latter the focus is on MINAmI-specific application fields: health care, assistive technology, housing and everyday. During different phases of the technology design process, required ethical considerations are different. The perspectives of different stakeholders should also be taken into account. By means of a holistic perspective we can consider the challenges, threats and opportunities in advance when designing new technologies for our future everyday environments.
