The Internet of Things in NZ - a discussion starter

We have released a discussion starter document around one of the next waves of change enabled by the Internet - the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT involves everyday objects being subject to network connectivity, allowing data to be sent and received. Think self driving cars and smart heating.

The IoT has the potential to transform many aspects of our lives. More automation, autonomous systems and machine based connectivity to benefit our homes, our businesses and our communities. While this poses some great economic opportunities for New Zealand, it also raises some important questions about safety and privacy.

Our discussion starter outlines conversations we have already had and includes our thoughts and questions we want answer. It also invites others to join the conversation.

The IoT discussion starter doc is linked below. We would love to hear your thoughts, opinions and feedback on the content to further the discussion. Please contact Ben Creet at ben@internetnz.net.nz with your thoughts.
