Description

Join us at the Real World Conversation, Connected Cities, Connected People

Almost every move we make in the modern city can be traced. Our bank records show what we’ve bought, our transit cards show where we’ve been and the trackers on our telephones give minute data on our activity through the day. Put all this data together and combine it with the new generation of sensors that will power the Internet of Things and you have connections like we have never contemplated.

These can do a power of good and create efficiencies in how cities run and serve their citizens but there is a downside. And mainly that is how much we want to share the data on our personal lives and habits.

This Real World Conversation, Connected Cities, Connected People, will explore the technology, the businesses that stem from it, its human impact and the legal and ethical frameworks that govern the compromises on our privacy. It will draw on QUT, local government and community expertise to look at how people remain the beneficiaries from the array of connections which will be made in our cities.
