Corporate business models of personalisation increasingly rely on sensorised collections of device-generated data. The smart home is a key case in point. The use of new technologies in the home will undoubtedly provide benefits, but it will also generate new legal challenges for corporations. For example, smart home devices can be ‘hacked’ or used as a home-made surveillance infrastructure to facilitate domestic violence.

Professor Bronitt’s research explores changing corporate responsibilities by examining information sharing frameworks for domestic abuse reporting in smart homes.
