The GoodBrother International Conference on Privacy-friendly and Trustworthy Technology for Society aimed to advance the knowledge on critical ethical concepts such as privacy, trust, and transparency of digital technologies, contributing particularly by extending emerging concepts and themes such as privacy-by-design, overthrust, transparency-by-design, and personalized transparency. The organizers invited 16 presenters to discuss their interdisciplinary approaches spanning the social sciences, legal scholarship, ethics, and research in computing and engineering.

The COST Action 19121 GoodBrother «Network on Privacy-Aware Audio- and Video-Based Applications for Active and Assisted Living» is a European Cooperation in Science & Technology network started in 2020. The aim of GoodBrother is to increase the awareness on the ethical, legal, and privacy issues associated to 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, policy makers, public services), stimulating new research and innovation.
