The Internet of Things and Future Shock: Too Much Change Too Fast?

Lee Rainie, director of Internet, Science and Technology Research at the Pew Research Center, spoke on May 10, 2017 to the American Bar Association’s Section of Science and Technology Law about the rise of the Internet of Things and its implications for privacy and cybersecurity. The velocity of change today is remarkable and increasingly challenging to navigate. Rainie discussed Pew Research Center’s reports about “Digital Life in 2025” and “The Internet of Things Will Thrive by 2025,” which present the views of hundreds of “technology builders and analysts” on the future of the internet. He also highlighted the implications of the Center’s reports on “Americans and Cybersecurity” and “What the Public Knows about Cybersecurity.”
