The Internet of Things will not flourish without laws to protect privacy rights and civil dialogue to build trust in new technologies, says a new Report from the University of Cambridge

The report, published by this week by the Cambridge Public Policy Strategic Research Initiative, explores the consequences of the new technology known as the Internet of Things, which many believe has the potential to fundamentally reshape business and social relationships.

Discussions which formed the basis for the report brought together researchers from a range of disciplines with industry leaders. Debates reflected the need for scientific and technological advances to be understood in conjunction with expertise on economics and law.
