Session 2: 11.00am - 12.00pm
AI and Privacy: How smart home devices compromise your privacy with Northeastern University's Dennis Giese
This talk discusses how smart IoT devices can potentially compromise user privacy by turning their "intelligence" into surveillance tools. While additional capabilities can enhance service and customisation, they also raise questions about privacy, often without users' awareness. This talk also explores the extent to which IoT manufacturers prioritise cybersecurity in their devices, with examples drawn from a collection of IoT smart devices that have encountered security challenges.
About the speaker
Dennis Giese is a Boston-based researcher specializing in the security and privacy of embedded systems and IoT devices. He also has a keen interest in physical security, applied research, and reverse engineering of malware and various devices. He has completed Masters degrees from Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany and Northeastern University in Boston
