Proceedings of the GoodBrother International Conference on Privacy-friendly and Trustworthy Technology for Society 2022
The GoodBrother COST Action (CA19121) on Privacy-Aware Audio- and Video-Based Applications for Active and Assisted Living (https://goodbrother.eu/) organized a hybrid conference on 'Privacy-friendly and trustworthy technology for society' that took place on 28 June 2022 in Zagreb, Croatia, and online on Zoom as well as YouTube. With this conference, we aimed to advance the knowledge on critical ethical concepts such as privacy, trust, and transparency of (AAL) technologies, contributing
... arly by extending emerging themes such as privacy-by-design, overtrust, transparency-by-design, and personalized transparency. Throughout the conference, the participants explored links, overlaps, and solutions between current proposed regulations such as the AI Act and other enforced regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation and the Medical Device Regulation. The organizers invited interdisciplinary approaches spanning the social sciences, legal scholarship, ethics, and research in computing and engineering. We received a large number of submissions in Spring 2022 from the authors in Australia, the US, Singapore, the UK, the EU, Norway, and Switzerland, accepting 16 papers based on the score and the feedback from two reviewers with expertise in computer science, ethics, law, and communication science. The papers were selected based on their quality and the fit with the conference theme. The reviews were sent with the acceptance/rejection email, and the camera-ready versions had to incorporate the reviewers' feedback. We subsequently invited the authors of the accepted submissions to extend their ideas during their presentations organized in three thematic sessions.
