Surveillance State : Pippa King - AV6
Sleepwalking into a
Biometrics, RFID, Big Data
& the 'Internet of Things'
For the past decade Pippa King has been at the forefront of the resistance against the use of Biometrics and RFID monitoring in schools and colleges. Through the prolific use of Freedom of Information Requests (FOIR's), Pippa has been able to establish where when and how these surveillance and tracking tools are introduced ... and then strives to get them shut down. It is primarily thanks to Pippa's tenacity that all UK students are NOT yet wearing active RFID devices! However, the latest move is to promote internet CCTV in the classroom; thereby enabling parents to monitor their children via their 'SMART' Phone ... or could it perhaps also provide the Establishment paedophile community to identify their next victims?
Pippa's presentation will illustrate how we have slowly become accustomed to sharing our data, our biometrics, the radio frequency grid, devices we use and carry - mass data gathering. The 'big data' that is gathered is used for profiling, us individually and en mass as a society, analysed by A.I. Artificial Intelligence. As our cities, homes and lives move to become 'smart' - what exactly is gathered about us, how is it used ... and by whom?
