Living bits and things

Virt-EU will take part to Living bit and thinghs event as knowledge partner.

Living bits and things event started in 2011 in Ljubljana and was held for one day only. It attracted attendees mostly from academia and those related to the EU IoT projects. It was organized in cooperation with Rob van Kranenburg, the IoT guru and took the advantage of the national IoT project Competence centre OpComm.

Our project coordinator Irina Shklovski will deliver a talk entitled: Ethics in the Internet of Things: Where, Who, How?

Talk abstract

The talk will discuss the location of ethics in IoT development. The concept of ‘ethics’ can be aligned with security, with community development, with financial decisions or design concerns. Often, the idea of ethics is discussed with respect to privacy and compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR). The talk will offer a discussion of common ethical concerns in IoT products and services, covering the EU GDPR requirements. The talk will further consider questions such as: At what stage do and should ethical questions arise? What are the sites of discussion for ethics, and what techniques or tools are currently available to facilitate ethical deliberation about IoT?
