Many mobile and wearable devices interact with their environment, with other devices, and with human users – and yet most of their communications occur invisibly via wireless networks.  How can users express their intent about which devices should communicate – especially in situations when those devices have never encountered each other before? 

These devices are physically small, with limited computational resources and user interfaces, leading us to explore novel combinations of physical proximity and user interaction to ensure user intent in establishing and securing device interactions.  In this talk we describe several recent research results, and their relevance to applications in medicine, healthcare, and the Internet of Things.
