Axios|SurveyMonkey poll: smart cities

Axios|SurveyMonkey poll: smart cities

Even though a majority of people are comfortable having “smart” devices in their homes and nearly as many are comfortable living in “smart” cities, most people in a new Axios|SurveyMonkey poll still overwhelmingly say they want control over what type of data is collected about them through these smart technologies. Key findings include:

  • 70% of people in the U.S. say they’re comfortable having smart devices in their own homes
  • 65% of people are comfortable living in smart cities, in which key infrastructure components—including electricity grids, traffic lights, sidewalks, etc.—are connected to each other or a network via the internet
  • 87% of people say it's important to them to control the amount of personal location data that is collected about them in public
  • 82% of people say it's important to them to control the amount of personal shopping data that is collected about them in public
  • 81% of people say it's important to them to control the amount of personal transportation data that is collected about them in public
