WITH THE INTERNET OF THINGS… • Shopping, purchase, and usage decisions will happen everywhere • Separation between the shopper and the consumer will diminish • Technology will measure decisions all along the way
WITH THE INTERNET OF THINGS… • We can know more about what people Do • We may not need to ask them What But we still need to know: • “Why?” • “How do you feel?” • “How do you decide?” • “What would you do if…?” We can ask people questions via a lot of new devices and in a lot of new ways
BUT WHAT ABOUT… • Acceptance (“creepiness”) factor • Privacy concerns

AND THERE IS ALSO… • Survey Overload how much is too much, will there be something equivalent to a “Do not call” list where users opt out? • Privacy Concerns strongest beneﬁts may have the highest risks, especially regarding health related devices • Lack of Clear Beneﬁt to Responding how do we offer incentives? • Early Adopters vs. Mainstream
