In the Internet-of-Things (IoT) era, the amount of user data that can be collected is significantly higher than in the past. New technologies such as smart watches, smart phones, and smart devices on body or in the environment collect sensitive information about users ranging from their health to activities and locations, etc.

This seminar reveals the privacy issues in the IoT era and discusses potential solution for privacy preservation.
