AI Spy: The New Frontiers in Surveillance
Sunday, 2 October
As surveillance becomes ever more sophisticated, should we be worried? From borderless security guards to Deep Fakes, what do we need to know about the changes to this technology? Jelena Sofronijevic is joined by Kirstie Ball, professor of management at the University of St. Andrews and Pete Fussey, professor of sociology at the University of Essex to discuss the possibilities and pitfalls in this developing digital realm.
“Surveillance is about power, so we really have to ask how that power is being wielded.” – Kirstie Ball
“The future of surveillance may look exciting, but it's often taking away rights in the name of convenience. It’s like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.” – Kirstie
“Surveillance can really erode interpersonal trust.” – Pete Fussey
“It’s important to think about the mundanity of surveillance, because it's the boring stuff that will transform our lives.” – Pete Fussey
