Panelist: Social Impacts of IoT
IoT applications and verticals deliver many benefits that include increased business productivity and better quality of life. At the same time, IoT also presents social challenges. For example, better quality of life, which often depends on data representing personal attributes and behavior, is confounded by security, privacy, and cyber autonomy concerns – will you be allowed to be anonymous in your AV-based mobility as a service? Similarly, increased productivity often means reduced costs through reduced human work – what does this mean for future of work and human agency?
This panel of experts will expose IoT social impacts such as these, debate the extent of the challenges and what could or should be done to mitigate the negative, including the role of any new public policies.
Joining Paul on the panel will be Dr. Tracey Lauriault of Carleton University, Alexandra MacEachern of the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC), and Michael Karlin of the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat. The panel will be moderated by Jenna Sudds of the CIO Strategy Council.
