Building trust is bigger than tactics – it’s your  entire mission

– Brian Clark

After the success of the Strategy event in 2017, Nuances of trust ambitions to be the AIOTI flagship event in 2018 and gather all AIOTI members.

Foreword by Kees van der Klauw, chair AIOTI:

AIOTI members have collectively identified TRUST as a key ingredient for a successful take up of IoT Innovation. When there is no trust, end-users may simply refuse to adopt the best IoT innovations, technologies and applications. And trust is not only determined by superior technology, or by great applications.

Trust in IoT remains a fuzzy concept, often narrowed down to security and privacy… but how can we build trust with stakeholders and on what this trust be based?

Following AIOTI’s strategic ambitions, we would like to take concrete steps to define a vision of trust and design an action roadmap to build certified trust in IoT ecosystems.

We invite you to define together concrete steps and measures to enable trusted relations between IoT stakeholders across five focus areas: Wearables, Smart cities, Critical infrastructures, Farming and Living. We will use creative and collaborative techniques to:

·      Identify of critical moments of trust, in upstream and downstream value chains

·      Develop ideas for trust-building solutions, such as technical concepts, standards, policy measures or codes of conduct

·      Cluster and consolidate ideas that can be put forward the broader AIOTI channels, including policy recommendations, inputs to the Research & Innovation agenda and industrial practice guidelines.
