The Ethical, Legal and Social Implications of Developing Smart Home Living

Number of Pages 16

The idea of developing a smart house in order to empower more vulnerable members of society, such as a disabled or the old, and increase their ability to live independently is not a new idea. In the 21st-century it has become possible for technology to comprehensively support the development of smart homes. However, while much attention has been paid to the benefits of using technology in this manner, less attention has been paid to the potentially controversial issues, such as the right to privacy, isolation and use of data collected by the smart homes. The writer looks at these issues and considers the different factors which will need to be taken into account in the development and use of smart homes. Thirteen sources are cited in the bibliography of this sixteen page paper.
