Ken Munro will be presenting: Telematics, tracking, and tormented souls
Tracking may be a buzzword at the moment, but over the last 4 years we have been keen investigators of the enabling technologies and sometimes shambolic implementations. Trust, privacy, and ‘what are they really doing with my data’ have proven to be genuine and serious concerns, so what can should manufacturers and users be doing?
From apps that allow tracking and sharing of location data on mobile devices, and even adult toys (yes, really) this session will explore and explain, with demos, what the usual points of failure are (shared platforms, unscrupulous vendors), and how they could be avoided. Finally we’ll touch on the telematics research we did on the NHS tracking app for the BBC.
