45 min. talk
If the new Internet of Things really is everywhere and if it doesn’t come with a switch to shut it off, then what does this mean for privacy? And who should be taking responsibility for this?
Ten years ago, I thought up a concept for privacy for the Internet of Things. I assumed back then and now, that we want these technological wonders, but probably the price we would pay is too high — a total loss of control, privacy and transparency.
To a degree, where every current violation of privacy or transparency will feel marginal. This new Internet of Things will be everywhere and it won’t come with a switch to shut it off.
This talk revisits the concept and will present an updated version. In its core, the concept redefines privacy and tries to escape the post-privacy debate. On the information side, it redefines how information should flow and how entities and ownership needs to be established on certain technological layers, but also in the design of the information interactions.
The talk and the concept is a lot about placemaking, context awareness and all the bits IA is made of, but with a twist: The information systems won’t be used by humans, but by computers — but we can’t leave that to the computer scientists anymore.
