As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, with more devices from our daily lives becoming part of the Internet of Things (IoT), one issue will certainly prevail: cybersecurity. We care about our security and privacy, and this undoubtedly won't change over the next 50 years. There will be shades of gray-based on cultural perceptions, needs, and trends-but privacy is part of human nature and affirmed as such in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We need our computing systems to perform as instructed or intended, unaffected by adversaries big or small.
