Trust Design: The Internet of Things Panel Discussion

A session at PICNIC '11

  • Tim Vermeulen
  • Lilet Breddels
  • Richard Vijgen

Wednesday 14th September, 2011

10:00am to 12:00pm (AMT)

Premsela, the Netherlands Institute for Design and Fashion, and Volume Magazine will host a panel discussion during PICNIC Festival 2011 to explore connections between the Internet of things and the concept of trust.

Premsela's Tim Vermeulen will talk with Trust Design project director Scott Burnham, Lilet Breddels of Volume Magazine, designer Usman Haque, and economic policy researcher Katalin Gallyas about how a challenging and complex issue such as trust can be supported or eroded in a world of networked objects and data-enabled devices. We often talk about “building” trust in the things we buy and the systems and spaces we use. This panel will ask: can we “program” or “access” trust more effectively in an Internet of Things?

Premsela’s Trust Design www.trustdesign.nl research project was created to explore the relationship between trust and design, focusing on a wide range of design disciplines and applications. Throughout 2011, Trust Design is partnering with Volume www.volumeproject.org to publish four supplementary issues exploring trust and its connection to various design fields and issues. The latest Trust Design/Volume publication details the potential, possibilities, and pitfalls when issues of trust and the Internet of Things meet. This panel discussion will be an opportunity to discuss these issues with practitioners, theoreticians and policymakers. Each issue will add insight to the “rules of engagement” needed to regain trust as basic condition for a functioning society.
