2006 (English)In: Etik i forskningens vardag / [ed] Anna-Liisa Närvänen & Elisabet Näsman, Linköping: Linköping University , 2006, 67-104 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
This paper casts an ethical spotlight on the development of advanced computer systems, in particular assistive technology (e.g. for older people). Recent progress in the design and application of monitoring and automation as well as computer-based cognitive and physical assistance is dramatic - sometimes in a good, sometimes in a bad sense. By analyzing four cases of 21st century assistive technology, the text identifies ethical dilemmas in research and the application of products. A set of design recommendations is derived, intended to inspire development of electronic assistive technology that helps in an effective way without being intrusive.
