Sobre a palestra
A toy is an item or product intended for learning or play, which can have various benefits to childhood development. Children's toys have become increasingly sophisticated over the years, with a growing shift from simple physical products to toys that engage the digital world. Toy makers are seizing this opportunity to develop products that combine the characteristics of traditional toys such as dolls and stuffed toys with computing software and hardware. A smart anthropomorphism toy is defined as a device consisting of a physical toy component in the humanoid form that connects to a computing system through networking and sensory technologies to enhance the functionality of a traditional toy. Many studies found out that anthropomorphic designs resulted in greater user engagement. Children trusted such designs serve a good purpose and felt less anxious about privacy. While there have been many efforts by governments and international organizations such as UNICEF to encourage the protection of children's data online, there is currently no standard privacy-preserving framework for mobile toy computing applications. Children's privacy is becoming a major concern for parents who wish to protect their children from potential harms related to the collection or misuse of their private data, particularly their location. This talk presents the related research issues with a case study on Mattel's Hello Barbie and ASUS' Zenbo.
