Regulators are nibbling. Privacy advocates are wary. And meanwhile consumers are being presented with an ever-widening array of internet connected gadgets that promise to simplify daily life. (A voice-activated mirror? An egg tray that notifies you when you’re running low? Seriously!)

For this week’s Q&A from the What’s Next briefing, we catch up with Jennifer King, director of consumer privacy at Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society, and ask what has her attention when it comes to the Internet of Things. One issue she’s watching is who bears responsibility for privacy in a world where there are fewer screens and more voice-activation.
