Canceled - Permission / Permissioning / Permissionless: Three Faces of IoT Evolution

November 21, 2019 (All day)


This event has been canceled. 

This talk will explore ‘permission’ in the IoT from three perspectives. Firstly, that active consent and permission is further breaking down, leading to a challenges to ‘boundary management.’ Second is a review of the technologies of ‘permissioning’ - frameworks and protocols from the identity management domain that enable users to grant granular permissions to share data. Third is a critique of the ‘permissionless innovation’ discourse within IoT policy discussion, which views government intervention into the developing IoT market as a hindrance to innovation, and decries precautionary approaches to regulation.
