Trust in the IoT Artist Residency The promise of the Internet of Things is that computing will disappear into the world around us. Any object, from a cup to street furniture, may be a connected object. This poses profound challenges, as its capability or use may not be transparent. This lack of transparency is compounded by a highly complex landscape of actors, where it is hard to determine who is responsible for devices, algorithms and data, and so who is accountable for privacy and when things go wrong. Profound issues are raised in the Internet of Things that are challenging to understand and address for industry partners and the public alike. Even among domain experts, a specialist in privacy may not understand the latest advances in security. This gap in understanding can inhibit acceptance and uptake of best practices among citizens and technology companies alike. The purpose of this artist residency is to make these issues tangible, visual, accessible, comprehensible.
