My Sensors. My Data?
From activity trackers to Google Glass, wearables are all the rage. But who should get access to the data? Unfortunately, just because you wear a device doesn't mean that you get access to your data. As a data scientist, I've been wearing 10+ activity trackers for the past 8 months. What have I learned? I've learned that I can't get my time-resolved data from these devices. Why not? Issues of privacy, lack of standards, and unclear business models for personal data collection and sharing make this difficult. Given this, where we're headed is not toward an Internet of Things, but toward many siloed Internets of Things. This panel will discuss barriers and enablers to creating an open data ecosystem that lays the foundation for one integrated network of connected devices.
Additional Supporting Materials
- What are successful business models involving personal data?
- I'm a device-maker. How do I provide users access to their data in a way that makes sense from a business perspective?
- What is the difference between open standards and having all of my data be accessible?
- Our devices all speak different languages. How can we move forward, beyond the Tower of Babel?
- What does an open data ecosystem enable that we currently can't do?
