Aging 4.0? Rethinking the ethical framing of technology-assisted eldercare

The present contribution aims to outline how existing ethical frameworks need to be extended or reconsidered to capture the ethical issues posed by technological developments regarding care for older people.

Smart Home in Private Households: Status Quo, Discussion, and New Insights

The article gives a status quo overview of the SH literature with regard to the interactions between SHs and their end-users and structures the literature into three categories (SH systems, SH application areas, and SH end- users) and 15 corresponding concepts.

Designing Digital Technologies and Safeguards for Improving Activities and Well-Being for Aging in Place

Emerging issues underscore the need to develop a set of guidelines for conducting HCI and human factors research based on an understanding of older adults’ perceptions and preferences about data privacy and security.

Remote Home Healthcare Services and Tools for Supporting Aging in Place

A review of the literature in the area of HCI and human factors related to assistive technologies to support aging in place and research and development efforts related to remote home healthcare services are presented.

Privacy concerns in the smart home context

This study takes an interactional psychology perspective and links the dimensions of the privacy concerns to the intention to use SH devices and explores how and why privacy concerns influence participants’ intended SH usage.

Privacy by Design and Cybersecurity for Safe, Effective and Reliable Home Health Care for Aging in Place

This short paper presents findings from a research and development project on remote home health monitoring, specifically tools and technologies for Aging in Place to help seniors live independently

Ethische Aspekte co-intelligenter Assistenztechnologien in der Versorgung von Menschen mit Demenz

Intelligente technische Assistenzsysteme werden zunehmend als Lösung für die Versorgung von Menschen mit Demenz diskutiert. Der Beitrag betrachtet zentrale ethische Herausforderungen des Einsatzes




Ethical issues and questions for researchers around informed consent; working with people who are cognitively impaired; surveillance and the passivity of monitoring; processes of care and using and linking lifestyle monitoring data are identified.

Pervasive computing and an aging populace: Methodological challenges for understanding privacy implications

Initial analyses suggest that extant metaphors of privacy may be inadequate for understanding pervasive computing in the home, particularly among the healthy elderly.

Older People's Involvement in the Development of a Social Assistive Robot

A participatory design approach is presented as a methodology to create a dialogue with older people in order to understand the values embodied in robots.

Interpreting Information Systems in Organizations

A coherent integrated source for an interpretive approach to understanding information systems in organizations to aid readers in their own processes of defining computer systems.

Review: Seven Matters of Concern of Social Robots and Older People

The findings indicate that older people are implicated but not present in the development of robots and that their matters of concern are not identified in the design process, and that more research on older people as social robotic users is needed.

Ethics of using assistive technology in the care for community-dwelling elderly people: An overview of the literature

An overview of the international literature on the most important ethical considerations in the field of assistive technology (AT) in the care for community-dwelling elderly people, focused on dementia finds ethical debate appears not to be a priority.

Remote home health care technologies: how to ensure privacy? Build it in: Privacy by Design

Current advances in connectivity, sensor technology, computing power and the development of complex algorithms for processing health-related data are paving the way for the delivery of innovative long-term health care services in the future, but along with these advances come valid privacy and security questions.

Privacy by Design in Personal Health Monitoring

A version of the concept of privacy by design that constitutes a middle road between what I call broad privacy byDesign and narrow privacy by Design is suggested, which attempts to balance automated privacy protection and autonomously chosen privacy protection in a way that is context-sensitive.
