The Ethical Issues of Location-Based Services on Big Data and IoT


Both Internet of Things (IoT) and big data are hot topics in recent years. They indeed have brought about the change of business, promoted the progress of science and technology, and facilitated the lives of human beings. IoT creates the opportunity to connect every item to the Internet, and countless science and technology have supported the achievement of this goal. LBS is one of the indispensable technologies. It brings significant benefits to the business community, the individual, the society, and the national defense. However, at the same time, an individual’s personal information is disclosed and even attacked by ‘information thieves’. An inevitable reality is that the prerequisite of getting a location service is to expose your position first. Therefore, the privacy-related ethics issues are generated, and the danger is imminent, although there are corresponding protective measures.
