"Video-based AAL technologies and balancing of interests"
About the project

An aspect that is necessary to take into account, when introducing new technologies into society, is that there are bound to be multiple interests at stake, which potentially come into conflict with each other, particularly from a legal perspective. For example, under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), an individual is able to gain access to the logic behind automated decisions that affect him or her, yet only to the extent that it does not interfere with any intellectual property rights to that technology (see Article 22 and Recital 63 GDPR). Another illustration concerns AAL technologies that have the potential to erode an individual’s privacy rights while at the same time bring great benefits to society in terms of the reduction of treatment costs. In short, this thesis will examine how the law should balance interests within the context of Video-based AAL technologies.

Start date: May 2021
