Guilt by Machine!
Police using new automated technology to help find stolen Wellington cars
If the public seriously believe the hype being given to 'stolen vehicles' maybe the media should inquire, where are the beneficiaries of this technology, all the happy original owners?
This is nothing more or less than watered down face recognition by proxy.
The Police can track (and trace) anyone 'of interest'... without a search warrant. There need be no intervention at the time, only a record of speed and direction.
We need look no further than this inane quest to create the 'silent' policeman. Number recognition of plates can be done (and logged) from existing surveillance camera technology we see over every controlled intersection with no more computational power than is in an IPad/Cellphone.
The question is, should we?
Chomsky and manufactured consent comes to mind. We are creating, yet again, a recipe for more 'deviancy amplification' - remember Len Snee and Gage the dog!
