Speaker Bio
Dr Donald Macaskill is CEO of Scottish Care which is the membership body for organisations that provide care in care homes, home care and housing support across Scotland.
In August 2018 he wrote ‘TechRights: human rights, technology and social care.’ which explores issues of AI and smart technology, arguing for citizens to be in full control of the technology they use in their homes and care. Scottish Care published a Human Rights Charter for Technology and Digital in Social Care with associated Guidance in late 2019 and a Vision for Technology in 2020.
Dr Macaskill’s interest in the necessity of a human rights and ethical framework for the use of technology and digital in social care has led to him addressing conferences across the UK and North America on this and related issues.
