The coming wave of connected devices presents further challenges to our collective conception of privacy. Blind, mute devices could tell no tales - but when Things monitor you invisibly more and more, how do we feel less vulnerable? How do we bring privacy values along and encode them into the devices? We're just starting to figure out which questions to ask. This webcast will survey some of the near-term challenges to governing our personal data in the emerging IoT.
