“Digital twins” as a way to help ensure legal compliance of video-based AAL technologies

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) offers strong protection for the individuals’ integrity. At the same time, video-based AAL technologies present serious privacy concerns that threaten the long-term sustainability of these products. One way to speed up the implementation of important research within the context of AAL technologies is to simulate data in digital twins [here, agent based modelling should also be a powerful tool], thus helping to solve key future issues without compromising individual integrity. Investigating opportunities to carry out important research without having to use personal data, but instead data on “computer generated agents” or other simulations is the focus of this project.
