Advances in Internet of Things. Article: Personal Perspectives: Individual Privacy in the IOT Authors: Johanna Virkki, Liquan Chen

The Internet of Things (IOT) is the extension of the Internet to the next level, i.e., bringing the Internet to the real physical world of things. In this research, 22 people working with different aspects of IOT development were inter-viewed in Finland and in China, in order to investigate their thoughts and personal opinions on the IOT and the indi-vidual privacy in the IOT. This paper presents the background of the IOT, interviews and collected answers, as well as highlights of collected free comments.
