“Smart” is not coming, it’s here. Smart robots perform various functions in our homes and in business, options for smart homes are increasing and smart cities are cropping up in different parts of the world. Options for “dumb” may decrease and technologies such as AI, the Cloud, IoT/IoE, 5G, XR and others increase the potential for a smart world. At the same time, these create novel challenges for cybersecurity and privacy considerations. This talk will cover the current cybersecurity and privacy legal framework that applies to such smart settings and how such has not caught up. Both U.S. and EU perspectives will be covered and future legal directions for the smart context will be discussed.
