The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the newest technologies on the scene today. It refers to “things” that are able to communicate on the Internet – things like Fitbits, Smartphones, biosensors, coffee makers, thermostats, and even automobiles. These things collect data and they make determinations about what people are doing, when they are doing it, and where they are doing it. That data can be saved on the devices themselves, or transmitted over the Internet to cloud-based servers where the data can reside indefinitely. These things, and particularly all this data, can be valuable evidence! Very interesting questions are starting to surface about the extent to which this evidence can be introduced in a court of law, how that evidence can be interpreted, and especially how it can be challenged. It’s a brave new world out there, where not only “big brother,” but “little robots” are watching you all the time!
Join Antigone Peyton and Clyde Findley in this podcast, as they explore the Internet of Things and discuss how new devices are creating evidence that can be used in litigations.
