This webcast will explore how the Internet of Things implicates privacy and, by extension, what it means for society. Listeners will take away:

  • • a sense of what is meant by the 'Internet of Things,' which does not have an agreed-upon definition
  • • a better sense of the nature of 'privacy' in a modern context
  • • an exploration of historical privacy concerns leading to an understanding of what is different today
  • • a broad discussion of how society, regulation and technology interrelate and interact
