After a few weeks of researching privacy and IoT, it's time to create a project outline to help focus my work. There's a lot of directions to go and it's been hard narrowing down to a more specific, while still open goal. I think choosing a current problem would allow more people to engage and understand my project - using new technology to improve the situation would help show it can be used for good.
My current project outline is: To design a tool that gives everyone informed consent on how their data is used. Show that the future of connected devices can be trusted by being transparent. Design with open source in mind so it’s easy to authenticate, repair, and modify. Give a new outlook on why privacy matters and show the Internet of Things can be more than what is out there today.
