Festival of Social Science 2019
Does digital surveillance and security help to keep us safe? Debate the pros and cons with us...
Advanced data analytics, artificial intelligence, predictive algorithms and advanced biometric technologies such as facial recognition have now become increasingly standard features of the police toolkit. But what are the legal and ethical implications of data driven security? And who do we entrust with this new technology?
This lively debate will be hosted by Dr Katerina Hadjimatheou from the Department of Sociology at the University of Essex. This is a free event and will run from 6pm - 8pm on Wednesday 6 November at Three Wise Monkeys in Colchester.
This event is part of the nationwide Festival Of Social Science, it is open to the public and completely free of charge.
