markt. you. are one of the world's leading scientists behind the development of smarts chemists is professor james or one of kingston university. systems his team of developing can detect suspicious activity even before a crime occurs. the way is to present large volumes of data over many months possibly years and so that enables the system to develop a statistical model of what is normal and maybe what is abnormal and so then there is an automatic flagging of anything that is considered abnormal. in locations where thousands of people pass in front of the cameras every day it's even more difficult for the systems to determine what is normal behavior and what isn't. are these people simply on their way to work or does this group hide
a terrorist. anyone suspected of crime in the u.k. quickly loses their right to privacy. the face what units of the london police presents faces of suspects to the public using footage from security cameras posted on the internet. this is a gentleman of interest. and their zimmers us appears. through a spot in their search goes on a public web saw and. were to clear decide to reauthorize. the empress submit. images now and gone into the system can be viewed by the public on the face or saw it on the face which. make neville is head of image recognition it's scotland yard if you use this kind of crowd sourced policing via the internet represents a powerful new way. in the fight against crime. yes thousands of people have
registered for the art and i tell you not only in the united kingdom people are very much they quite accept the c.c.t.v. they think the police to a good job with the c.c.t.v. and they while they're happy to identify criminals there's not so much a fear or surveillance at all think in the united kingdom as possibly on all mainland europe. over the past decade the u.k. has been constantly seeking new ways to combat the perceived threat of terrorism. this military base two hours outside of london the newest techniques are getting put through that paces. mark lawrence is one of the new breed of experts offering instruction in the east of unmanned aerial vehicles or drones. no official government sources who publicly talk about the effectiveness of this new technique only mark lawrence who speak with us. so one planning to
do now is hopefully track patrick than either on his way there or is way back if i don't see him in a shot i will fly to the horse track see if we can pick him back. the one takes place across three miles. ok so we've got patrick we've located in using the drone so we're going to fly towards in the. big brother approaches unnoticed from the air. when the target is discovered the becomes a constant companion it's a height of one hundred twenty meters. and what we're doing is using a g.p.s. lock to do this survey double click here we can just keep the subject in the center string and screen and also at the same time the unit will follow him back with surface fly this way.
so there were yeah we got you for you in the house and coming out as well. so that's why it's good for covert surveillance. would be possible that we in the future see drones flying over our heads maybe not directly overhead but definitely the police are using these now they're using them for surveillance work and not just sneaking around spying on people as a lot of people seem to think so sometimes to catch the bad things going on you need to be a bit i could call it sly but just secretive about it. there are plans to fit the drones with improved cameras incorporating face recognition technology. quietly public privacy is being exchanged with greater security. michael chandler is the head of vanquish security back in london he's also keen to demonstrate some of his techniques. some of which are alarmingly effective. like this how did you get that well basically what we've done was we remotely
source the much for your farm i recorded a pre-determined time and that record and then upload it to our online platform where it really yeah the phone was bugged whilst it was left unattended on a table during an interview with the police. professor or well was also monitored. ok so here's the photograph taken in the play station i believe. that one and there's this one. here the course. so obviously there will be phone calls ok text messages which has been the only one we have an overview of your location which is because it's only the location for this afternoon but in general it's also got all the photographs that have been taken and also the all the voice recordings that we have made so you just can't see everything without my
knowledge actually basically. ok it works only that. there is absolutely no way for you to be able to find a device on your phone is totally hidden only we could only we would be able to find it ok so this is the photograph that we found in your phone currently i don't know what they are but what i can do is have a look at the times they were taken and then cross or cross or upset with one of the recorders we have also the location. we can show you that you were. a play station on seymour street that goes through g.p.s. this is a g.p.s. report coming from your device and that's all legal this is totally legal. absolutely legal yes well i think this. is this demonstration has revealed it's becoming easier to convert we track individuals using modern technology. and it's happening far more often than we realize.
according to x. n.s.a. analyst william binney american security agencies now have the technology. for their story at all they're collecting it all and storing so the large storage facility that's what that's all about and the point is that they hope by storing it all now that sometime in the future they'll figure out how to go back into it and figure out what's important so they can retroactively analyze it that's why they need five zeta bytes of storage at utah to store it all. you know what's the u.s. government that the two years he was responsible for electronic espionage a decade ago when you began to bug u.s. citizens who left the saudis to fight against terrorism seem to change the rules of engagement. i mean there are
virtually is nothing in the network that they can't have a copy of if they start targeting youth so so so what they already have your data i can't find out what they're doing with my data. but i know they have it ok. so i make sure i write in there whatever i whatever i had to say about them i say that in there so that when they collect that they know what i'm thinking of them. with specially developed software. happens while computers without says realizing. this is a promotional video from the money factor of. a surveillance program designed for the police. it is widely used across western europe and the principle is always the same. your thoughts he's infect the victims computer with money when
they hide in a fake software update. the unsuspecting music clicks. and the police can know everything is happens on screen. intrusion gets passed once e-mails you can see store with dates. still in oregon is shilling nike for one hundred million dollars claiming that the company failed to include a warning on its air jordan stickers that they could be used as dangerous weapons after a used his own pair to beat a man. another pimp this from the pacific northwest bill gates continues to tempt out your privacy and data to the n.s.a. and many other forgot the spy agency want him a few bucks rather than is
a sneaker this pimp the boys this company software products including skype as a dangerous weapon against the constitutional rights of unsuspecting customers on the products. and gates so himself when he gets caught. when i compiled spacex disease in europe in space if you do not state what we are seeing is the difference but the biggest by so doing still do well does not the u.s. department of the food budget of space to. do foods and some of. the measures . the with the pledge play it was terrible to say the i'm very hard to make i don't let you get along here is a plot that you never had sex with others make their lives let
alone. listen to the i'm . a. previously peacekeepers for a program are concerned with monitoring peace close again at post conflict environment nowadays they are increasingly asked to operate in a high risk of violence while believe bibles are still illegal all we need to stay . motionless with these people has caused over almost twenty years four million
people killed millions of displaced and refugees tens of thousands of women raped tens of thousands of children recruited those soldiers who were slaves no. millions around the globe struggle with hunger each good. what if someone offers a life time food supply no charge they carry sub they can the very strong position against g.m.o. and we think that. the genetic anymore the right products are priest to tool there is no. evidence that there is any problem with genetic engineering when you make a deal. or is free cheese always in the most truck i don't believe
once a year from around the world meeting. the theme of this year's meeting he states abatements keynote speaker jacob knows what it means to be prosecuted he's a close friend and supporter of julian assange. to be free from suspicion is one of the first freedoms that is important for being free in the rest of your life when you are followed around when you are being investigated because of the whim of someone this is the beginning of the end of your freedom does the n.s.a. routinely intercept american citizens' emails you know those the n.s.a. intercept americans cell phone conversations no google searches no text messages no i'm a sun dot com orders no bank records no. but there was general
alexander most powerful person in the world probably even more powerful than the president of the united states or any of the leader of any other country. first of all because we know for a fact. we know for a fact from our client that the n.s.a. was in fact doing dragnet surveillance of all of those things well i mean i don't really use a mobile phone for anything except security. so i don't really use a mobile phone i choose not to use facebook because i really think it's. just you know systems that make tradeoffs that are not democratically decided. the icelandic capital of reykjavik is the perfect location from which to investigate the technologies states can use to track their citizens. it was from. this infamous video and from. those involved with the
release of the video suddenly found themselves facing up to a powerful opponent. jones to to. the media and to wiki leaks send photos from the video to the international press. this activity transformed into a national security targets and to a right to digital privy see was repealed even though there were no legal proceedings against. my person. within three days without my knowledge which means. the we. do have a very bad. government of the united states to go into people you know even parliamentarians. country. matters. most remarkable about this story is that the key to justice. that it is
a member of the icelandic parliaments. furthermore twitter was not the only source of private digital information to hand data over to the u.s. security agencies. michael enough what experts say in this field in the states for example they speculate it is face perhaps skype or ip holes no five but the judge says refuses to god acknowledge the requests from her years to unseal its companies it is. jones that it did nothing illegal when she released the video but it was enough to warrant invasive snooping from the u.s. security agency's. me. my younger son older son. some people that i've got to know later i used to work with. with three years ago the icelandic people took to the streets the banking crisis
and hit the small island nation heart the icelandic source been revolution ultimately forced the general election. as. quickly to john's that was elected to the new parliament but for the u.s. government she remained a target. again you only today jones to take campaigns but it's to rights and self-determination she wants iceland to become a safe haven for sensitive data. they want to put a stop to the prying eyes of the state. we had everyone on last round the world cherry picked all the best. e-mails for example could be protected in the same way as written correspondence. there is absolutely no country in the world this is actually properly addressed the fact how easily it is
for governments and corporations to mine through our private data we in iceland are focusing on creating a standard and setting an example and then it would be really ideal and this is one of the thoughts behind the spending want to meet initiative. be ideal if we can you know with these new set of laws create a haven in such a way that you know i would like to see it spread to other countries. the police can shut down illegal sites as was the case with this raid on the submarine for online file sharing site the pirate bank. the problem is with the legal information from other providers that may be lost in the process. to protect these data from any access it needs to be in an unreachable place in the future that place could be in iceland the idea of iceland as an inverse tax saving. of say
a person to protect people's privacy and use information. free speech protecting people against the touch. is a very nice woman. stephanie something with. which it will take time so you know. it flew for a long time everything should be a church bit. but the gates of jones does here who continue to use facebook twitter and google claiming she's a guinea pig in the monitored space. she says whoever spied on her feels they can do it with impunity and that's how the case should be a warning. and it is a temptation to go into somebody's home without them ever being able to know about it and then i'm referring to my online home for it is just as sacred as my offline home this is where all my private stuff is this is where all my personal
letters are this is where all my thoughts and all matter beauty and movement can be traced so you know hands off my home. a similar case of monitoring is currently on reveling in berlin. and dre home is a noted sociologist who is teaching at the home most university. for months he was shadowed and monitored. suspected is the leader of a militant group they committed arson attacks in berlin in two thousand and seven. as far the awful i was i still only a small sum of what was the morning of the thirty first of july so some a day in the morning before seven and work up to a pounding on the front door and then
a mass of armed men fell on me with the then three me to the ground as my hands fixed behind my back that said what's on as off you then get the impression that you're in a film. because they behave is in one of the thrillers all action movies. give us all callousness so i was already aware that there is such a thing as house searches and arrests as if that's directed also against left wing activists the still listed as a that was already going through my head but i could not understand what they actually had to do with me directly at home so it was an abstract fair that i had at that point. a home was arrested by special detachment and brought to federal court in cannes row. only later did home learn that he had been systematically monitored. up to federal investigators that been studying his academic as ace in the widespread use of
expressions such as gentrification and casualisation had inflamed their suspicions these were terms also used by the militant group that it claimed responsibility for the berlin arson attacks. the investigating authorities had created a character great to use in the investigation which suggested suspects should have extraordinary political and historical knowledge and the scientific and analytical ability to execute the attacks. following his arrest the investigating judge ordered holmes detention. after thirty days in solitary confinement the federal court ruled that there was no strong suspicion. for the first time since his arrest home is free and for the first time he learns about the surveillance protocols surrounding him yet search from the minutes reveal a detailed investigation into all aspects of homes life.
investigators monitored home social environment in can find any evidence to incriminate him. but this only caused them to intensify their surveillance. according to their logic home is an intellectual who is highly conspiratorial and expertly concealing his misdeeds. that they may be on the tail of an innocent person didn't seem to occur to his pursuance. of what conflict you have or what you that's what we were completely monitored our personal emails have been right that they have basically found ways even before the online search to gain access to our computers. or the stock up there is also a sense of political outrage in the country. over the loss of freedom to choose
what the main ingredients of domestic social values should be. elementary because those personal freedoms are trampled that in the course of these kinds of investigations and over fundraising and little class it also occurs because it's. finally anyone who now search is underway home on the internet we receive a huge number of results in many articles linking him to terrorism. for the rest of his life and ray home will be tainted by the phrase terrorist suspects. people are more conscious of the need to protect their digital privacy than ever before the cool for digital self defense is heard everywhere. emails are sent encrypted but many are choosing to do without social networks like facebook and twitter. in vienna this group meet once a week for a cypher party they discuss how to make themselves invisible in the network. well
of a theory when there's a thought is the goal of that though when the people it's operating on a anonymity that is from web browsing chats or other internet services to make it anonymous most of the credit. until now encryption techniques have only been in the domain of the authorities and the elite internet geeks these people want to spread the word. of. their cup of pop to some that cycle parties have formed spontaneously all over the planet but the interest of the population has risen in the course of more government control and more profiling by large companies such as google facebook and others and the interpretation and openness of this profound data is a major problem and a major threat. is
a basic human rights. when you bareback with the internet you're back with big brother so maybe it's a good idea just like we understood with. it is we have a personal responsibility to not infect our friends and lovers and neighbors and when you use the internet without any without anonymity without privacy what you do is you. and probably even to your country certainly.
i think. over. did you know the price is the only industry specifically mentioned in the constitution and. that's because a free and open process is critical to our democracy shred albus. in fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of our government and our proximity we've been hijacked why handful of transnational corporations they will profit by destroying what our founding fathers once told us i'm job market and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on in the world we go beyond identifying the problem trying to fix rational debate and a real discussion critical issues facing america five go ready to join the movement
