    Abstract

    This study sets out to explore the relationship between privacy and the Internet of Things. The research addresses the history and applications of The Internet of Things, as well as exploring the particular security concerns associated with it. It explores the reasons for, and effects of attitudes towards privacy and surveillance, and examines these findings in a cultural, economic, social, political and philosophical context. The analysis, and conclusion, of the conceptual trends found in the research findings, conclude that notions of privacy are changing according to the technological landscape, and that a suitable balance between security and privacy is needed in the implementation of the Internet of Things.
