Power influences upon technology design for age-related cognitive decline using the VSD framework
In June 2018, David published, co-authored with Oliver Burmeister of Charles Sturt University, Australia, a paper in a Special Issue of the journal Ethics and Information Technology on Value Sensitive Design, entitled ‘Power influences upon technology design for age-related cognitive decline using the VSD framework.’
Abstract: Implicit in the value sensitive design (VSD) approach is a concern for understanding, and where possible, disrupting problematic power relationships. Yet an awareness of the issues and ethics of power relations is a pre-requisite for such a concern to bear fruit. This article provides some insight into the issues, and through a case study of technology design to support care arrangements for age-related cognitive decline, illustrates how finding a satisfactory resolution can be particularly troublesome.
