Festival of Social Science 2019

Does digital surveillance and security help to keep us safe? Debate the pros and cons with us...

Surveillance and security in the digital age

Join us as we discuss the growing reliance upon digital surveillance and security to uphold public safety. Debate with leading experts on the legal, ethical and human rights concerns surrounding increasingly digital policing.

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.

This conference will be organised by Professor Florence Myles from the Department of Language and Linguistics at the University of Essex. The event will run from 10am - 4pm on Saturday 9 November at XXXXXXX in London.
