Food-ordering fridges, automated lighting and smart energy meters are all becoming part of our everyday lives. But as the world around us becomes increasingly 'smart', what are the associated challenges and risks? This event brings together computer scientists, geographers and sociologists from the University of Aberdeen to discuss and demonstrate what communities really want from the Internet of Things and how people can come to trust these technologies and the data they produce.
