The Growing Internet of (Your) Things: from sensors to security
The Internet of Things is rapidly developing, primarily driven by businesses that see opportunities for profit through new business and business models. But other key players also include public administrations and non-profit institutions that see the IoT as an opportunity to address societal challenges in efficient ways that were not available before.
Evolution from machine to machine technology to the growing IoT networks raises challenges at every level that can become barriers to adoption when not addressed. New masses of data are generated by our things and then shared between objects. Smart algorithms can combine this information but also changes the meaning of privacy and security. Ignoring security and standardization threatens the longevity of IoT products.
The IoT has become a real game changer. How do we adapt to this new reality? What is needed most in order to create an environment that fosters positive evolution of the IoT, allowing us as businesses and society to benefit fully? And what role is there for the different stakeholders?
Internet of Things; IoT; ethical; multistakeholder; dignity; fair use; ethical by design; privacy; GDPR
The stage will be set with a short overview of the results of the dialogue on IoT during the 10th IGF in Joao Pessoa, November 2015. Following this, representatives of key stakeholder groups ("multistakeholder panel") will highlight in short statements (<5 minutes) how they feel about where we are, today, and what needs to happen, next, in order to ensure a healthy progress of IoT development and deployment in the world.
Following this, two short keynotes will inform the discussion:
- Progressing IoT in a broad societal coalition: European Commission/AIOTI initiative;
- Putting privacy and data protection in perspective: European Data Privacy Officer for progressing IoT in a responsible way, in the context of the GDPR and privacy shield.
After this, there will be a moderated discussion in which all participants can take part. The moderators switches between the audience and the "multistakeholder panel" as appropriate. The session will be closed with a preliminary conclusion by the moderators
