The physical, ubiquitous, and autonomous nature of the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) raises various accountability challenges relating to safety and security, privacy and surveillance, and governance and responsibility. The authors consider the IoT's emerging systems-of-systems nature, providing the broad legal context for addressing these concerns and highlighting directions and opportunities for improving levels of accountability in the applications, systems, and services that will increasingly pervade society.
