Introduction
OpenDoTT (Open Design of Trusted Things) "is a PhD programme* to explore how to build a more open, secure, and trustworthy Internet of Things". I have moved in 2019 to Dundee to work at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, and relocated later to Berlin to work at the Mozilla Foundation. The whole project has migrated from the University of Dundee to Northumbria University in June 2020(\).

The challenges of the Internet of Things (IoT) require interdisciplinary thinking. As IoT evolves, the internet becomes more deeply entwined in humans’ everyday lives. Data flows around us in ever more complex ways: wearable technologies monitor our heartbeat, AI voice assistants cohabit our kitchens and our children’s bedrooms, smart cities know our every move and facial recognition determines our access across country borders. These technologies need to be built responsibly, and this practice requires the cultivation of design research and advocacy. OpenDoTT addresses this on a systems level. By training the very people who develop and influence IoT technology, we can create positive change that starts at the drawing board.
