The Dark Side of the (Ubiquitous Computing) Force

Abstract

Ubiquitous computing has great potential. Its proponents argue that it could enable a whole new wave of "invisible" technology that fades into the background of our lives in the same way as the electricity and water grids. But as one of its inventors, Mark Weiser, noted, it requires "a very difficult integration of human factors, computer science, engineering, and social sciences."

In this talk I'll look at some of the things that could go wrong if computing environments are designed without an adequate consideration of human factors. In particular, what are the privacy implications of ubiquitous sensors and the storage and processing of several orders of magnitude greater quantities of personal data?
