Understanding privacy in smart homes systems used in elderly care

Abstract [en]

Although privacy is considered as a main concern in developing and implementing smart home systems for elderly care (SHSEC), the concept of privacy in this context is unclear and there is a lack of tools supporting the analysis of privacy in this context. Moreover most of existing project aiming at development and implementation of SHSEC have a narrow technical focus ignoring the complex social and organizational context in which the technologies are used. In this paper we propose Actor Network Theory (ANT) as a suitable analytical tool for analyzing privacy in the context of SHSEC. The suitability will be illustrated through a case study. The paper also contributes to a better understanding of the socio-technical nature of privacy in this particular context where many different actors are involved and technology is an integrated part of the elderly’s life and home. As we will show, ANT can help us to understand how the privacy requirements are negotiated during the design process, which actors are involved, what their interests and preferences are regarding privacy and which actors clearly outweighed the others.
