The ‘Internet of Things’ is a name given to exponential technologies encompassing our physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and increasingly normal everyday objects such as water bottles, that can store and exchange data. For consumers, they are often fearful of these advances and question how secure their personal data is. To overcome this issue, consumers must self-educate about personal security, moving away from a naive perspective and become mature, responsible agents when operating these data-storing devices.
In this podcast Steve Durbin, Managing Director at the ISF talks with Scott Amyx, Managing Partner at Amyx Ventures (a Venture Capital firm) and author of the forthcoming book ‘The Human Race’. They discuss the implications of the Internet of Things (IoT) and what the future holds – not just for businesses but also consumers.
