The Internet of Things: Potential Liability When Refrigerators Speak to Pacemakers

Date: Tuesday, September 23, 2014 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Venue: Presidents Room / Minnesota State Bar Association  Minneapolis, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $25.00


Deadline to Register:  Thursday, September 18, 2014

Many disparate devices can currently interact, and that intelligent interconnectivity will expand to many more previously “dumb” devices. For example, Internet-enabled thermostats and smoke detectors can currently work together to regulate whole-house temperature and to Tweet users which room may be on fire.  Cloud-based services like If This Then That (IFTTT) can work with intelligent devices to greet homeowners by automatically unlocking doors.  Many of these devices have the potential to be hacked or to malfunction, so they will need periodic software updates to address new defects and security concerns.  Notably, some devices with undisclosed connectivity are feeding data to third parties, like a car manufacturer, an insurance company, or the government.  A litigator and a professor will discuss the potential legal implications of the ever-expanding Internet of Things.

Lunch will begin at Noon, followed by the CLE program from 12:15 p.m. - 1:15 p.m.

Special meal requests need to be received no later than Thursday, September 18.
