TED Salon Talk: Inside the Massive (and Unregulated) World of Surveillance-3:30 PM on Zoom



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.

CLICK HERE to view the talk by Sharon Weinberger (11 minutes.) Try to watch the video before the event. It will be shown before the discussion.

 

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.
