Magiken i tekniken : En fråga om tillit när tingen börjar tala

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap

Sammanfattning: This study is about our approach to new technology in general and the Internet of things in particular. What does it require regarding trust from our side, in order for Internet of Things (IoT) to work? What risks are associated with the use of IoT? How should we handle the fact that mindless objects will talk to each other about all we do and then mediate this? In order to get answers to the reasoning about these issues, the study examines thoughts, attitudes and approaches to technology through qualitative interviews with a total of 19 people. Using theories of societal development and change, as well as literature on the Internet of things and the risks of the Internet, the study analyzes what thoughts are present and how these are important to gain an understanding of how the IoT will affect society. The interview study reveals some clear dimensions, according to which the thesis is divided. These are “security, trust and risk”, “private or public”, “control without control” and “magic in technology”. The result shows that the Internet of things requires far-reaching trust, which respondents do not think about in everyday life. Even more of our intimate behaviour are also mediated in a way that it has never been before. The study also shows that there is both an automatic, unconscious use and an addiction in the utilize of the technical gadgets, as well as a clear magic element.
