    About

    The Internet today is increasingly the home for communications between sensors and devices. Societies are experiencing a hyper-connected revolution based on the Internet of Things (IoT); devices connected to the Internet, operating across a host of industries, including communications, entertainment, medical, agriculture, energy and transportation.

    While the IoT promises significant benefits to society, it however, also poses considerable policy, legal, ethical and technological challenges. Autonomous systems of IoT operate beyond the governance paradigm of the traditional Internet.

    IoT are now being discussed heavily to determine the need for regulation and to provide decision makers with suggestions on how to respond to issues such as privacy, security, and support for future innovation. There are also global debates happening on standardization and interoperability need.

    Republic of Korea is ranked as second in IDC’s ‘Internet of Things Index’ following the United States (source: IDC, 2013). Last year, the country established a ‘Global Council of Public and Private Sectors for IoT’ and a ‘IoT Innovation Center’ to improve partnerships between software, device and businesses.

    The Internet Society’s (ISOC) Asia Internet Symposium Seoul will bring together leaders from Government, Business, Academia and End user communities to deliberate on technological and policy issues for IoT.

    The following points are intended to be deliberated:

    •     Opportunities brought by IoT to the Korean society ?
    •    Need for global standardization and how to address interoperability issues?
    •    Key public issues surfacing through IoT evolvement ?
    •    How much trust can we put into devices and risks to our privacy?

    Participants / Invitees

    • Ministry Officials
    • Business Community.
    • Entrepreneurs.
    • Representatives from Academia.
    • End Users.
