Life isn't fair and the legal system is a leading example.
I'm sure the Google TOS list their corporate liability explicitly although I'm sure the vast majority never actually read it and you almost have to be a lawyer to understand it.
Those are the rules we live under, if you want to comit a really big crime, incorporate.
The only way to hold large groups of people accountable is to hold their leaders accountable. I learned this as a 17 year old cadet at the US Air Force Academy.
If you want to avoid the problems of moral hazard and lack of personal accountability in our economic system, then you should hold the owners (i.e. board members) and managers (i.e. CEOs) of companies accountable for crimes committed under their watch. Having a CEO write a book about his 5 years in the general population at Folsom will be a heck of a deterrent when people are tempted to lie in accounting statements, steal data or trade secrets, etc.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
