As our cars, phones and computers get “smarter” they – and the companies that provide them – know a lot more about us than they used to. This explosion of sensing devices and the growing embrace of “big data” logic means that we are creating a sensor society: a society which demands that all sensor-derived data is collected, stored and used down the track. Dr Mark Burdons research examines how this new society presents significant legal and regulatory challenges to our understandings of privacy law, surveillance and power.
