Our every day life is increasingly influenced by digitalization and therefore it is not surprising that consumers’ home and leisure are digitally connected. Although current market penetration is relatively small, a great expansion on the mass market is expected. In this context, big data already plays an important role and is going to be used more frequently in the future in order to optimize smart living applications.
Together with Stiftung Neue Verantwortung a report for the ABIDA-project has been written between September 2017 and February 2018. The report aims at systematically analyzing big data in the area of smart living and gives an overview of data-driven smart living applications. Furthermore, necessary needs for action with respect to informational self-determination, user profiling and IT-security in the area of smart living and big data were identified and recommendations were developed.
The results were based on a literature analysis, expert interviews and expert workshops and published under the title “Big data and smart living: Status quo and development trends”.
