Internet of Things (IoT) devices are part of the future we were promised. Armed with phones, we control everything including cars and toasters. IoT bring us ethical quandaries. We must consider the implicates of the things we’re building and ask ourselves how they are being used for good and evil.

In this session, I will share personal anecdotes and well researched statistics relating to IoT devices.

I will point out ethical threats we’re facing when building IoT devices, and look at the kinds of things we can do to do better.
