Internet of Things and the ethics of our machines

by scott pickard

These topics are extremely worthy of discussion because I fear there is an inevitable march towards the dystopian visions we have had as long as we’ve created Science Fiction. The Internet of Things (IoT) will grow at an accelerating pace that we cannot understand and it will covertly saturate our lives without us fully realizing the unintended consequences of these changes. We will adapt and acquiesce to this world in marginal steps that seem relatively harmless to us (look at what has happened with privacy in the Facebook era) and in fact we may accept this as the inevitable advancement and trade-offs of our technological society. IoT will bring more of everything to us but at a cost that we will not fully realize in terms of privacy, surveillance, and most importantly self-determination. We will be so reliant on IoT and machines that there will be no turning back.

Internet Internet of Things (IoT) big ideas There are more than 2.5 billion people worldwide who are connected to the Internet, but in 2014 there are over 10 billion things that are connected to the Internet and growing every minute! in general: air quality egg | application development platform: thingworx | connect devices: electricimp, flic, Nest | embedded systems: freescale | enterprise: jasper | human interface: glass | industrial: Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) > Manufacturing | mapping: Memex | plants: PLEASED | theinternetofthings |
