Many people are acquiring smart devices, and yet do not have an understanding of the data these devices gather about them and what can be done with this data if it is aggregated over time. The talk will demonstrate what data several popular devices—including the Nest Thermostat and a few others—gather and show what can be learned about an individual from this data. Read more.
