301 E 6th St
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a hot topic, will be a key driver of consumer electronics innovations and has enormous implications across every sector of our economy. We’re on the cusp of turning everything “smart” -- from our homes to our street corners -- but how do we build a market that supports innovation while still protects your right to privacy? This panel will discuss the challenges and opportunities of these technologies and what policymakers need to know.

Keith Winstein is an assistant professor of computer science and (by courtesy) of law at Stanford University. Winstein and colleagues have developed technology to enforce a “right to eavesdrop on your own things,” so that consumers and researchers can learn what our networked devices are saying about us. He is a founding member of the Secure Internet of Things Project, a collaboration between Stanford, U.C. Berkeley, and the University of Michigan. Winstein and colleagues created the Mosh (mobile shell) tool for remote access over challenged networks, the Sprout algorithm for transporting video over cellular networks, and the Remy system, where computers design network protocols from first principles. From 2007 to 2010, Winstein was a staff reporter at The Wall Street Journal, covering science, medicine, and technology.Hide the rest
