Consumer surveillance systems (CSS) comprise privately owned IoT cameras that record persons entering/passing by the device owner’s property in a cloud. When networked in neighborhoods CSS creates a massive private surveillance system accessible by police upsetting traditional notions of government surveillance and privacy. This session will explore the technical, social and legal issues raised by CSS.
Learning Objectives: 1: Learn how networks of IoT doorbell cameras create private consumer surveillance networks. 2: Understand how crowd-sourced video data upends traditional notions of privacy. 3: Explore the social, legal and ethical issues of consumer surveillance networks.
