if you like throwing a phone call. the. surveillance systems here aren't just simple cameras. anyone who behaves unexpectedly triggers an alarm intercept agree humans can observe will evaluate behavior through the smart cameras without anyone noticing. if the camera detects an unusual event the subject is marked. one of the world's leading scientists behind the developments of smart's cameras 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 there zimmer's us appears are we. throw
a spot in there so it goes on a public website and. i were to care to cite a real throws. them for a submarine. and the images now going into the system can be viewed by the public on the face or saw it on the face which. make never the head of image recognition its scotland yard if you use this kind of crowd sourced policing via the internet represents a powerful new weapon in the fight against crime. yes i was a paper of register for they they are and i tell you not only in the united kingdom people are very much that they quite accept the c.c.t.v. they think the police to a good job are the c.c.t.v. and they while they're happy to identify criminals as not so much a fear of surveillance at all think in the united kingdom as possible and on mainland europe. over the past decade the u.k. has been constantly seeking new ways to combat the perceived threat of terrorism.
at this military base two hours outside of london the newest techniques are getting put through that base its. mark lawrence is one of the new breed of experts offering instruction in the east of unmanned aerial vehicles or drones. you know 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 few odd i will fly to the horse track and see if we can pick him back. the hunt takes place across three miles. ok so we've got patrick we've located in he's in the trunk so we're going to fly towards in the. big brother. unnoticed from
the air. when the target is discovered the u.a.e. 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 sort of a double click here we can just keep the subject in the center string on the screen and also at the same time the unit will follow him backwards so this fly this way. when you go. to work yeah we've got you here in the hudson 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 oh did you get that right well basically what we did was we remotely source a lot for your file i recorded a pre-determined time and that record and then upload it was all i put for. free yeah the phone was bugged whilst it was left unattended on a table during an interview with the police. professor orwell was also monitored. ok so here's the photograph taken in the play station i believe there's that one
and there's this one. here the coast so obviously there were phone calls ok text messages which has been the only one you 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 not 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 they 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 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 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 stories that you tough the story at all. the u.s. government to yes 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 seemed 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. it's not your thoughts he's in fact the victims computer with moan when they hide in a fake software update. suspect the music clicks my case and the police can now upset everything as it happens on screen. the intruder gets passwords emails and can see still with dates and.
millions around the globe struggle with hunger each good. what if someone offers a lifetime food supply no charge. they can the very strong position against g.m.o. and we think that. the genetically modified products are priest. there is no. evidence to this any problem with genetic engineering when you make a deal. or is free cheese always in a mouse trap i don't believe that. for and that free. enterprise is profit not. for social justice golden rice.
on june sixteenth one thousand forty one we had a graduation party at school and the war broke out. the shops were always full of goods. in september leningrad was blocked. one day mom went and saw that all the shelves were empty. in november they bombed the dynasty warehouses just it was the main storage place for all the food in the city people eating the earth because it had small traces of sugar in it i tried to eat it as well but i couldn't. the third night it was incredibly heavy bombing and. it was a direct hit on that very shelter and everyone was buried underneath. all of them would dead.
pleasure to have you with us here on our t.v. today i roll the sushi. when c.n.n. is from around the world. the theme of this year's meeting the. keynote speaker jacob knows what it means to be persecuted he's a close friend and supporter. 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. routinely intercept american citizens e-mail.
those the. americans. conversations. google searches. text messages. orders. bank records. but there was general alexander some 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 i mean i don't really use a mobile phone for anything. so i don't really use a mobile phone i choose not to use facebook because i really think it's. just there's systems that make tradeoffs that are not democratically decided.
the capital of reykjavik is the perfect location from which to investigate the technologies states can use to track their citizens let me know when you get ideas from that. infamous video from the right. those involved with the release of the video suddenly found themselves facing up to a powerful opponent. who is the media and who wiki leaks sent photos from the video to the international press. this activity transformed into a national security targets and to a right to did you to prove a c. was repealed even though there were no legal proceedings against. my person. within three days without my knowledge we.
do have very bad. the united states to go into people you know even parliamentarians. to. matters. most remarkable about this story is that the key to john's. that it is a member of the icelandic parliament. furthermore to it was not the only source of private digital information to hand data over to the us 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 was acknowledged a request from the barriers to unseal its companies it is. jones the tape did nothing illegal when she released the video but it was enough to warrant invasive
snooping from the us security agencies. me. and 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. to johnston was elected to the new parliament but for the us government she remained a target. you know again. today jones to take campaigns for didst 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 have one 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. idea of iceland has an inverse touch saving. lives say a place of protection because by the simplest information. free speech protecting people against the touch. is a very nice woman. stukely something with. which it will take time so you know. it flew for a long time everything should be a search for it. but the gates of jones that's here will 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 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 matters 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 revelling in berlin. andrei home is a noted sociologist who is teaching at the home boat 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 as the wall for why was i still only a small sum opera's 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 three meter the ground tires in my hands fixed behind my back that that works on as off you don't get the impression that you're in a film. because they behave as in one of the trailers or action movies. give us a callous or so i was already aware that there is such a thing as house searches and arrests directed also against left wing activists this 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. the federal investigators that been studying his academic essays 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. 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 he excerpts from the minutes reveal a detailed investigation into all aspects of holmes life. the investigators monitored home social environment in couldn't 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 what you that's what he were completely monitored our personal
e-mails have been read 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 in the course of these kinds of investigations and it's over for as i said a little passive also because because it's going to. 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 terror 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. whether the theory taught is the goal of that though when the people that's operating under it 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 late internet geeks these people want to spread the word. of.
the public some that cycle parties have formed spontaneously all over the planet 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. as a basic human rights. apply. when you bareback with the internet you're back with big brother so maybe it's a good idea just like we understood with aids in the eighty's we have a personal responsibility to not infect our friends and lovers and neighbors and when you use the internet without any crypto without anonymity without privacy what you do is you present a transit of risk to your community and probably even to your country certainly to yourself. with most people. but this would have signed with.
where art. prevails sleep peacekeepers for a president concerned with morning touring peace deals in a post conflict environment nowadays they are increasingly asked to operate in a high risk of bias while believe violence to leave are reduced. motionless but these people have caused over almost twenty years four million people killed millions of displaced and refugees tens of thousands of women raped. children drug. those so jews slaves know it's.
another day for egyptians to say yes or no to a new military backed constitution after attempts by islamist opponents to sabotage the voting resulted in bloodshed. the u.k. is criticised for refusing to let in syrian war refugees who are struggling to survive one of the world's worst humanitarian crisis in decades. and say hello to a new version of cyberspace where internet providers get to decide which websites you see based on their commercial interests we explain shortly.
