Topic of the webinar: Welfare technologies: Design, evaluations & privacy concern


Way Kiat Bong, Associate Professor at OsloMet - Oslo Metropolitan University, Department of Computer Science, Member of the research group: Universal Design of ICT 

The webinar is about two research projects:

  1. The first one is about designing a welfare technology, for and together with elderly people, and the end product’s name is Tangible Cup. By using Tangible Cup, it is hoped elderly people can be less skeptical in new technology, which then increase their technology acceptance, social interactions and hence quality of life.
  2. The second project is about welfare technologies, particularly Internet of Things devices in the home, and the focus is on privacy, security and safety from the point of view of the users.
