About

Sadly, our scheduled speaker is ill and will no longer be able to present. We have found a replacement speaker and will update once we have confirmed a new date.

Technologies for Active and Assisted Living (AAL) aim to improve the quality of life of elderly individuals and persons with disability, promoting independent and healthier living environments.

The use of computer vision plays an important role in the realm of AAL whereby, through the processing of images, activities of daily living can be monitored, and potential hazards may be detected with the aim of providing assistance in a timely manner. 

This webinar will offer a glimpse of the ongoing work within the GoodBrother COST Action, highlighting the application of computer vision to AAL. Beyond the technical considerations, this webinar will also discuss the ethical and privacy implications of video-based monitoring for assisted living.
