Technology seems to come hand in hand with modernity. It has made most tasks that used to take days to complete much easier. Technology has also improved the channels of communication. The invention of the modern day smart cellphone coupled with social media networking has allowed mankind to be in constant contact with one another from across the globe. However, despite these vast improvements, technology has also come with a lot of risks especially regarding personal information.
The documentary “Citizenfour” aims to raise public awareness about the state surveillance in the name of so-called maintenance of national security. It consists of related news and a series of interviews with Edward Snowden, revealing details about PRISM. What it mostly shows is facts rather than one’s opinion. Notice that the media depiction hugely influences the way people view the issue. The less opinion and emotional description are used, the more room for the audience to think.
The “Facial Recognition”, article on who’s watching you in public is compared to the book 1984 by George Orwell; by its use of notification to the citizens of personalized identification without consent. For example, within this book all citizens are watched through the telescreens on critique facial expressions, suspicious body language, and use of self documentation. I am strictly against these practices that 's used in this country although, it is bringing more store sales it still should not betray privacy of a customer. A customer is always bound to change their mind on certain perceptions in what they purchase in a store.With this use of betrayal of privacy within a store I believe that in today’s society they will progress even larger.
In this paper, I argue against Government Surveillance. Although a society full of cameras could help solve some crimes, it is also true that the Constitution, through the fourth amendment, protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures by the government. Despite the fact that this is not a guarantee against all searches and seizures, only those that are deemed unreasonable under the law should be monitored. In addition, increasing political surveillance with the excuse of protection against war or enemies only fuels the fact that innocent people’s lives are being monitored. Finally, the information collected by the mass internet surveillance programs could be used for other harmful purposes since hackers could gain access to the databases and sell the information to other companies or terrorist groups.
Society is based upon millennials that are growing up in a world relying on technology in order to function. One of the most important devices would be the Apple iPhone. The iPhone has many features that exceed people’s expectations. However, people do not realize what others can do with their phone. For example, skilled hackers can take an image and copy your fingerprint using the iPhone’s security. It is questionable how the iPhone and other devices are so easily invasive towards future generations privacy and everyday life. Technology’s hidden power and the constant abuse of it, makes a similar dystopian society that relates to George Orwell’s novel,
Driving along the freeway from church. You suddenly see flashing lights through your rear view mirror.You keep driving only to find out that the lights that are flashing are for you to pull over.

We live in an age where technology reigns free and cameras are everywhere. Most people carry a smartphone with the ability to record events as they happen at the time, and the footage appears frequently on the news and internet. In the field of law enforcement, a prominent debate is forming as to if police officers should wear body worn cameras so they can similarly record incidents in real time. Many departments in the United States have adopted body cameras as standard equipment today. In California, a police department has been using body cameras and recording what happens between officers. The force used by officers had declined 60% during the past year.The cameras were introduced and citizen complaints against officers dropped by 88%. The objective of body cameras is to deliver an accurate record of officer engagements for complete situational awareness and tamper proof digital evidence.
The first step is to determine which aspects are the most important to you in a safe. A biometric safe uses one of many different techniques for determining that you are the safe owner. A common option is a safe that uses your fingerprints to determine your identity. Other options include voice recognition, face or iris recognition, or even your DNA. A safe that uses
Police Body Cameras, also known as Body Worn Videos, have been central in a heated debate surrounding an aggressive and increasingly militarized police force, that through misconduct and controversy has lost the trust of the American people. These body cameras have the ability to rebuild this trust by providing accountability and training to the officers as well as crucial evidence for the courts.
Everything you do is being watched thanks to NSA. Americans privacy is being revoked because of new technology. From “cookies” tracking your computer to drones following you on the street. Technology is becoming an immense part of our everyday life. We tend to forget how powerful technology can be. Faces have been tracked using cell phone information, you may want to consider this next time you unlock your phones with your face or fingerprint. Whatever you allow to be posted on the internet is at risk for others to view without your permission (including the NSA). $10.8 billion of taxpayers’ dollars goes into NSA upgrading its surveillance. The government is working quickly at adding more public surveillance; this could be used for good,
If you own any firearms or valuables you want to protect, then you ought to consider buying a safe. Before you buy a traditional safe, however, you ought to consider biometric gun safes to use versus the traditional pistol safes. Actually, many safes can come as a fingerprint safe or utilize biometric technology. It 's merely another form of locking mechanism. But before you do just spend your money on the first clearance-item safe you can find (because they can be fairly expensive), look at the various brands on the market, and be sure your safe is loaded with benefits to suit your needs.
Face recognition system comprises of two Categories: verification and identification. Face Verification is Done in 1:1 match ratio. It is utilized to looks at a face pictures against a Template face pictures, whose identity being claimed. On the complement, face identification is a 1: N problem. It is used compares a query face image against all image templates in a face database. Face recognition has distinct advantages over biometrics systems using finger print/palm print and iris, because of its non-contact process. It is mainly used in security systems. Face images can be captured from a distance without touching the person and the identification does not require interacting with the person.Additionally, face recognition is used in the crime deterrent purpose because to identify a
Topic: Surveillance cameras in public places such as malls and streets are a great idea to increase security against criminals and not a breach of privacy.
We often use the words “science and technology” for engineering. what can be done by engineers with science and technology? Researchers think about it and do some research which resulted in the understanding that engineering is about planning and designing something that helps society by regulating science and technology.
In HCI based face image analysis, face image consists of large information and the analysis of face image can provide many cues for various purposes. The scope of face image analysis includes not only face recognition, facial expression recognition, but also gender determination, age estimation etc., The face image analysis consists of four modules such as face localization, feature extraction, dimensionality reduction and decision making based on feature-dependent analysis. The decision can be made toward gender determination and age
