Internet of Things: Just Someone Else's Computer?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Internet of Things not only enables new technological possibilities; it forces us to confront and upend assumptions we have about our devices, our property, and our persons.

Embedding networked computers in a wider range of objects--not just tablets and phones, but cars, wearables, medical devices, appliances, and homes--generates data about consumers, and gives control over how the devices work and the data they generate to people outside the consumer's home.

Our laws and behaviors are built around personal control of personal property. But now that those devices are "smart," they can have "loyalties" to people other than their owners, in their code and in the law.
