The IEEE Internet Initiative (aka 3I) invites you to join us for a dynamic discussion focusing on the emerging issues and innovations with regard to algorithmic decision-making. There are a growing number of IoT (Internet of Things) devices being deployed in the commercial sector. This encompasses a wide range of devices from FitBits, to mobile phones, to connected cars, to smart clothes and watches. As we envision a future of self-driving cars and data-driven, dynamic decision-making, we seek to consider how algorithms may be developed to ease the burden on users while ensuring security and privacy. Can these algorithms balance social considerations centered on crisis management or life and death scenarios?  

In the case of an accident or even death, whom does society hold responsible, when the decision making process is automated and made by the algorithm? 

IEEE is delighted to bring together leading industry experts during this Google Hangout, for a 360-degree debate around algorithmic decision-making and the impact on our increasingly connected lives. 

Moderated by:
• Joni Brennan | Kantara Initiative

Guest Panelists:
• Anna Slomovic | IEEE Standards Association
• Bob Blakley | Citigroup
• Robin Wilton | ISOC
• Steve Wilson | Lockstep Consulting

This Hangout On Air is hosted by IEEE Computer Society Google+. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

The May/June issue of Security & Privacy is now available online. Read Associate Editor in Chief Susan Landau's introduction and check out the rest of the issue here:
If we hope to provide an Internet of Things that's useful, we must understand users' privacy expectations of their smart devices and the environment in which they operate. Samsung's Smart TV situation throws that into clear relief.

New York Times Article:
An elite group of security technologists has produced a report that questions the validity and practicality of encryption back doors used by governments. Several of the authors in this report are editorial board members and authors (Peter Neumann, below) for IEEE Security & Privacy.

A new report says giving the governments “exceptional access” to encrypted communications would jeopardize confidential data and critical infrastructure.
