Towards a responsible Internet of Things

Presented by: Jeff Katz
Time: Friday, Jan. 11, 12:15 PM - 1:15 PM

More and more aspects of our lives are becoming connected to the internet. While today they tend to be large, expensive, or otherwise visible and consciously acquired, in the near future these devices will be ubiquitous, pervasive, and if we're not careful, invasive. There are many (https://iotmark.wordpress.com, https://www.thingscon.com/iot-trustmark, https://www.bvdw.org/presse/detail/artikel/digitalbranche-befuerwortet-datentransparenz-bei-iot-geraeten/ etc) efforts underway to find a framework to enable consumers to better understand what exactly they are getting when inviting these connected devices into their homes. What data is being collected? What happens if the company goes out of business? This talk is an overview of the current thoughts and best practices that should be considered while designing a connected device (or service based on connected devices), and is appropriate for everyone from consumers to interested practitioners.
