Privacynq Brief Eases Consumer Privacy Concerns for IoT Products

PrivacyCheq

New standard for easy-to-understand privacy and security disclosures builds
consumers’ digital trust in IoT products

Click to Tweet

YORK, PA. – September 21, 2015 /MobilityWire/ — 

Today PrivacyCheq (www.PrivacyCheq.com) announced the immediate availability of Privacynq, a new service enabling manufacturers of Internet of Things (IoT) devices to easily and effectively disclose privacy and security practices to consumers of their products.

Until today, it has been very difficult for consumers purchasing IoT sensors to wear or place in their homes to know where the massive amounts of captured data was being stored, where it was shared, and what (if any) precautions were being taken to protect it. At the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show and numerous other speeches, the Federal Trade Commission has urged the IoT industry to self regulate and ‘design for privacy’ by giving users a clear understanding of the privacy and security aspects of their products.

The Privacynq service provides an elegant solution to this IoT “privacy vacuum”, enabling manufacturers to easily deliver consumers a condensed privacy and security report called a “Privacynq Brief.” The Privacynq Brief gives concise, understandable answers to the best questions that a privacy and security expert would ask when considering the purchase and use of an IoT product, such as “How do I benefit from this data being captured?”, “What is captured?”, “Who is my data shared with?”, ”How is it secured?” and “How will you notify me if a breach occurs?”

To help consumers make informed purchasing decisions, Privacynq Briefs can be easily viewed on any smartphone while shopping in stores, on a desktop PC while browsing e-commerce sites, and even from an IoT product’s mobile ‘dashboard’ app. Unlike paper or static web notices, the Privacynq Brief is an always current “live” online document, tracking any changes in the product’s privacy and security policies whenever it is viewed.

“While the 2015 Pew privacy survey showed that 91% of consumers feel their privacy is ‘out of control’, consumer IoT manufacturers have so far missed a great opportunity to impress consumers by being forthright and open about privacy and security,” said Roy Smith, PrivacyCheq’s CEO and founder.

“We created the Privacynq Brief to give the emerging IoT industry an easy way to delight users by delivering clarity on privacy and security, as recommended by the FTC. What we are doing for the IoT market with this disclosure is analogous to the ‘Nutrition Facts’ labels on packaged food that show important dietary and ingredient information, allowing shoppers to make informed decisions. This type of standard disclosure is critical to build consumer trust in IoT products as they become more and more integrated into our daily lives.”

A sample IoT Privacynq Brief can be viewed on any mobile or desktop device at http://tinyurl.com/privacynq. The Privacynq service is available immediately with a free 30-day trial at www.privacynq.com. Discounted pricing is available for IoT incubators and startups, and the service is free to students and educational institutions.

Kimera Systems to Give Live Demonstration of Major Artificial Intelligence Breakthrough

Kimera Systems

Kimera System will demonstrate new capabilities of its Nigel technology, now the first AI system that extracts understanding from observing reality and not just the analysis of words

Click to Tweet

  • Nigel™ now has situational awareness that allows it to use natural language processing (NLP) and understand “why” a user says something;
  • Nigel is able to understand the complexities around human behavior by using newly developed techniques to process sensory data, instead of focusing just on speech;
  • Using data from Nigel’s neural network and the various sensors on a device, Nigel can discern even subtle differences in context and situations that can make one sentence or question have a wide variety of meanings;
  • While other AI technologies can understand “what” a person says, this demonstration uses the core Nigel technology to power the first NLP functionality that uses real-world intelligence to understand “why” it was said.
     

PORTLAND, Ore. January 14, 2015 /MobilityWire/ — Kimera Systems (www.kimerasystems.com), producers of Nigel™, the world’s first commercial human-like intelligence technology for connected devices, today announced it will be demonstrating a major breakthrough in artificial intelligence at the NewTech PDX meetup, held in Portland, Ore. on January 16. Kimera Systems achieved the ability for Nigel to have a situational and context awareness that allows it to understand the “why” – achieving this breakthrough at least five years before the earliest prediction that such technology could be ready for commercial deployment.
