IoT refers to devices that are connected to each other via the Internet, including sensors, networked appliances, and the smart city. Design disciplines can help to create ethical IoT technologies
We interviewed Marcel Schouwenaar from The Incredible Machine on his prototype, a transparent charging station.
IoT security needs UX design to appropriately manage complexity. Architecture school teaches how to design for an IoT context with privacy in mind..
This year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES ‘17) showcased numerous internet of things (IoT) devices but was found wanting when it came to security concerns. In his UX of IoT report from CES, Scott Jenson assesses that “companies really, really, REALLY want to make home automation systems,” but how can we begin to consider the ethics when developers don’t even consider security risks? IoT systems pose two security challenges. First, they can be manipulated as surveillance infrastructure to target vulnerable people.
Last week, I encountered discussions of drones in two unimaginably different contexts: in an academic presentation at USENIX Security 2016 and on the TV comedy Portlandia. As distant genres, they offer different perspectives that have equally important UX implications for privacy preservation. In the opening keynote of USENIX Security, Dr. Jeannette Wing examined the trustworthiness of cyber-physical systems, which are engineered systems with tight coordination between the computational and physical worlds.
