Event description

Description

You and your colleagues are warmly invited to attend an event to launch the release of The Internet of Things (IoT) and People with Disabilities: Exploring the Benefits, Challenges, and Privacy Tensions - a white paper drafted by the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) with support from the Comcast Innovation Fund and in consultation with the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) Technology Forum.

The IoT and its associated data collection is producing accessibility-related advances, ranging from smart home devices to self-driving cars. IoT devices and services are empowering persons with disabilities to participate more fully and autonomously in everyday life by reducing some needs for human intermediaries or accommodations. In addition to the potential benefits of IoT devices and services for people with disabilities, unique privacy risks and challenges can be raised by the collection, use, and sharing of user data. Depending on the circumstances, privacy can be enhanced or diminished by IoT technologies, creating potential tensions between privacy gains and losses.

This paper explores the nuances of privacy considerations for people with disabilities using IoT services (specifically regarding transparency, individual control, respect for context, focused collection, and security) and provides recommendations to address these privacy considerations.
