Training School in Bucharest, Romania.
Bucharest, Romania welcomed Goodbrother's trainers and trainees between May 14-17. The aim of the Goodbrother COST Action and this 2nd Training School was to increase awareness about the ethical, legal, and privacy issues associated with 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, policymakers, public services), stimulating new research and innovation. Some of the topics covered were: - Computer vision for AAL -Privacy preservation in video data - Longevity Medicine: The Challenge between Geroscience and Gerontechnology - The facilitators and barriers to adopting the new technologies in health care. - Explainable AI ... and much more
The Goodbrother Mentorship Programme for Young Researchers and Innovators (YRIs) aims to create a platform of shared knowledge and professional development, connecting seasoned experts with emerging talents in the realm of research and innovation. This initiative offers an opportunity for accomplished researchers to lend their expertise and provide guidance to the next generation of YRIs.
With the starting of the last Grant Period of the Action, the Core group has started to plan the activities. The following are some of them (under preparation):
