Corcoran, Peter. (2019). Privacy challenges for smart-cities: The challenge of IoT camera uberveilance. Paper presented at the Smart-Cities Vertical session, IEEE 5th World Forum on Internet of Things (Plenary presentation), Limerick, Ireland, 15-18 April.
The challenges of handling personal privacy are examined in the context of a smart-city environment with every-present surveillance. The current state of digital camera technology is reviewed and two over-arching approaches are considered to manage privacy; in the first approach data processing is implemented on the camera itself and only necessary data is sent to central cloud repositories for post-processing. In an alternative approach individuals are tracked in the video data and once identified they are explicitly removed from all stored and processed data; this is verified via a privacy blockchain which can confirm compliance with GDPR for service providers.
