DescriptionThis project aims to identify and analyse the social, economic, legal, technological and ethical issues related to identity, privacy and security in Ambient Intelligence (AmI), as called for in the Work Programme. The partners will review existing AmI projects, studies, scenarios and roadmaps to ensure that the SWAMI project captures, as far as possible, the major trends and issues. The partners will compose 'dark' scenarios, the aim of which will be to expose key socio-economic, legal, technological and ethical risks and vulnerabilities related to issues such as identity, privacy and security that may emerge from the deployment of AmI technologies and services, many if not most of which will be invisible to the public. The partners will define and study various research and policy options, which could serve as safeguards and privacy-enhancing mechanisms. The aim will be to identify mechanisms, which will ensure user control, user acceptance and enforceability of policy in an accessible manner, as well as to ensure that all Europeans have real equal rights and opportunities of accessibility to the Ambient Intelligence space. The partners will seek to validate their findings through two workshops with other AmI and IST experts before presenting the options to the Commission in a final report. Project results will be disseminated widely and continuously throughout the project and will be presented at a final, high-level conference.
