Dealing with the Tension of Data Use and Protection of Privacy
Uwe Riss, PhD & Beat Tödtli, PhD
Organizations process personal, sensitive data and pursue objectives that are shared to varying degrees by the persons concerned (data subjects). On the one hand, they must protect the privacy of the data subjects, and on the other hand, they should use the data in the interests of the data subjects. Findings from our VA-PEPR research indicate that the criteria of feasibility, desirability and cost-effectiveness play a central role.
In this workshop, we would like to bring together the perspectives of administration, research and the private sector in order to question existing data handling practices and discuss new approaches to data use in which data subjects are given more control over their data. Data intermediaries can play a role here.
There will be inputs from experts. Anyone interested in the topic is invited to join.
Workshop #5 13:30-15:30
KI und VA für Ressourcenmanagement, Prävention und Gesundheitsförderung unter Berücksichtigung von weitestgehendem Datenschutz
Prof. Michael Doerk & Peter Hofer
Nach einer kompakten Darstellung der Forschungsergebnisse erfahren die Teilnehmenden, wie auf dieser Basis eine KI-gestützte, virtuelle Assistenz entwickelt wurde und erleben durch eigene Erfahrungen und Experimente, wie man möglichst hilfreiche Antworten zu Ressourcenmanagement, Prävention und Gesundheitsförderung von dieser VA erhält.
(Tipps, kreatives Ausprobieren und Testen, Ideen und Visionen) >> rcc website
Dieser Workshop dient dem Kennenlernen der relax-concentrate-create Applikation der HSLU, mittels derer Daten für das VA-PEPR Projekt erhoben wurden und welche eine Weiterentwicklung durch die Nutzung von Sprache und ChatGPT erfuhr.
Die Teilnehmenden werden gebeten, einen Laptop oder ein internetfähiges Device möglichst in der Grösse eines Tablets mitzubringen. Zum Experimentieren mit der KI-gestützten Sprachassistenz ist das Mitbringen eines Headsets hilfreich.

Digital Offboarding – do we need digital exit strategies for an aging society?
Prof. Dr. Sabine Junginger
Language: English (German translation available if needed)
Smart homes operated and directed by virtual assistants and AI promise many benefits for an aging population. Current research and development therefore focus on how to get people ‘onboard’ the digital, the metaverse and AI. User-friendly and meaningful services strive to secure ‘ongoing’ engagement, to avoid discontinuation of use and to ‘keep people onboard.’ While research has begun to address the requirements and opportunities for aging users, we know little about the interplay of digital dependencies (i.e., the fact that some services are only available digitally) the aging process (i.e., difficulties in adjusting to new technologies, loss of ability to work with or access previously familiar apps), and ever-changing technologies (i.e., updates, new versions, systems breakdowns, etc.). How may we learn more about this interplay and what might it mean for the delivery of private and public services in an ageing society? Do we need to plan for digital exit strategies at later stages in life?
In this workshop, we want to unpack the issues emerging for people who are digitally literate, self-sufficient and capable of accessing public services through e-government for most of their lives yet experience a loss of these abilities. Initial questions include but are not limited to:
- What challenges do aging societies and elderly people face in a digital/AI service landscape, public and private?
- How might we avoid ageism, yet provide protection for individuals and others? How might we conduct research in these areas ethically?
- What might user research look like, what forms might it take?
- How can we rethink the design of policies for digital and AI technologies from the perspective of everyday people? What legal provisions might we need to think of or set in place?
- What might be the implications for the individual, their care takers, or elderly care more generally? How may we prepare for new roles and responsibilities?
The aim of this workshop is to kick off a new area of research and practice within the EU Digital Fairness Act. Anyone will benefit but if you have first- or second-hand experience with aging digital users or want to participate in the future development of solutions, please come and share your perspectives.
