Re: Many Smart City Applications
I definitely agree. I think a lot of the time any more people become so focused on all this new technology and the next best thing that they forget what’s happening around them..

Re: Many Smart City Applications
@PhilMiller. It’s an uphill battle with no easy answers. Of course you can see where they are coming from with regard to their personal privacy but the firm needs to be able to properly manage their mobile devices especially for security’s sake. Typically we offer them a “firm phone” As a workaround but no one likes the idea of carrying around two devices. Some folks have held a strong stance and said they just wouldn’t have the firm email on their phone and when they left the office they’d just be out of touch. Not good for the clients either. Banging head on desk...

Re: Many Smart City Applications
@vnewman we see the same issues all the time at Comcast. Our guys are very cautious about what they share with who and when for the exact same reason... personal information being included in information to be shared for a project. Looks like your guys are on top of their stuff.

Re: Many Smart City Applications
@Joe - I work for a Global law firm and we do some labor and employment law.  As you can imagine, this is the CSG/Practice group most vehimently opposed to agreeing to anyone/anything accessing any device/data where they may have some personal information residing as well.  

They have seen one too many litigations where employee data was dredged up auxillary to what the company said they were in the process of collecting.

@Kishore - Oh I know. Vigilance is certainly needed. Though part of me worries the whole of the country seems rather complacent anymore. It wouldn't surprise me at all if our liberties just floated away while we were all watching an MLM video on Facebook Live. ;-)

Re: Many Smart City Applications
@Elizabethv: I am not saying that the risks are not there or that vigilance is not needed. As with other things, we weigh the costs and benefits and make decisions. So far, most people have been comfortable. The situation could well change as has happened with NSA.

Re: Many Smart City Applications
@Kishore - I just hope people don't end up volunteering freedoms only to regret the situation later. As in the hands of the wrong people, something like the floorplan of my house, or a detailed list of my locations day-in and day-out, could eventually be used in quite the sinister fashion.

Re: Many Smart City Applications
About privacy, I have got to say that from the time I have been in the SF Bay Area, eighteen years now, I have heard this refrain in the context of at each stage of the evolution of the technology. There was a time when people did not think it is a good idea to be on Facebook. Every single time, technology companies offer a deal and consumers grab it. All the freebies on Facebook are so irresistible. Indeed, it has become a part of the fabric of everyday life. It will happen again with IOT.

There is no doubt that there is real value here the conversation is/will become if the value is worth the risk.

I would also like to see a comparison of energy usage/cost between LED and Traditional street lights.
