Quotation Sturm, Nadine, Trukeschitz, Birgit, Cornelia, Schneider, Gfeller, Emanuel, Vlaeminck, Marc, Dröscher, Susanne. 2020. “CARUcares” – Deliverable 2.4.2 Ethics Manual and Legal Aspects – second iteration: discussing the integration of an US-TTS and SST-service. Vienna, Austria:Johanniter Österreich Ausbildung und Forschung gemeinnützige GmbH.




The 2nd iteration of the Ethics Manual presents ethical topics that arose during the process of developing functions for CARU to be tested in 2 field trials. The business perspective of testing minimum viable products and using an US-service for speech-to-text and text-to speech transfers has caused issues which needed to be discussed with data protection experts. Several CARUcares partners have involved legal experts and shared their statements about the issue. The end users of the care sector raised a major concern about data protection even in the testing phases, as real data are planned to be used. For business and development partners, it is necessary to define useful features in the field trials before investing in the development of an internal speech recognition (not using an additional service). Furthermore, the effects on predefined ethical aspects in the MEESTAR model presented in Del. 2.4.1. are considered in this deliverable.
