Wednesday 25 September 14:00-15:30
Lifelogging technologies may enable and motivate individuals to pervasively capture data about them, their environment and the people with whom they interact. In contrast to the advanced technical development in lifelogging technologies, the knowledge about the human factor regarding the willingness to adopt such technologies and to be supported by digital services is still considerably underdeveloped. This lack of understanding has significantly reduced the transfer of these developments to innovations having a social and economic impact.
Aspects of technology acceptance, the detailed study and the willingness to accept self-tracking technology, as well as the individual usage motives and barriers are mostly disregarded or underestimated so far. Any successful rollout of such technologies requires the acceptance of users and their openness to not only tolerate technical approaches, but to integrate user-centered technology in their personal life. Moreover, the General Data Protection Regulation establishes the obligation for technologies to meet the principles of data protection by design and by default.
This special session aims at discussing all these issues and collecting, from the different stakeholders participating in the session, their opinions about the motives and barriers that limit users’ acceptance and makes the deployment of lifelogging services for AAL difficult.
