Liane Colonna has been appointed to be the Action Vice Chair in the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action

Post-Doctoral Fellow Liane Colonna has been appointed to be the Action Vice Chair in the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action entitled Network on Privacy-Aware Audio- and Video-Based Applications for Active and Assisted Living (“GoodBrother”).

The aim of GoodBrother is to increase the awareness on the ethical, legal, and privacy issues associated to audio- and video-based monitoring and to propose privacy-aware working solutions for assisted living, by creating an interdisciplinary community of researchers and industrial partners from different fields (computing, engineering, healthcare, law, sociology) and other stakeholders (users, policy makers, public services), stimulating new research and innovation. GoodBrother will offset the “Big Brother” sense of continuous monitoring by increasing user acceptance, exploiting these new solutions, and improving market reach.
