TED Salon Talk
INSIDE THE MASSIVE (AND UNREGULATED)
WORLD OF SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY
NOVEMBER 17th at 3:30 PM on Zoom
Meet TED Salon Talks. They welcome an intimate audience to highly-curated TED Talks revolving around a globally relevant theme. They are distinct in their brevity, opportunities for conversation, and heightened interaction between the speaker and audience— just what we are looking for in this discusssion moderated by Dan Kemp, a member of Wellesley Neighbors.

Here's the description of Sharon Weinberger's talk:
What is a weapon in the Information Age? From microscopic "smart dust" tracking devices to DNA-tracing tech and advanced facial recognition software, journalist Sharon Weinberger leads a hair-raising tour through the global, unregulated bazaar of privatized mass surveillance. To rein in this growing, multibillion-dollar marketplace that often caters to customers with nefarious intents, Weinberger believes the first step is for governments to classify surveillance tools as dangerous and powerful weapons.
