Nikolas Badminton was invited onto Lynda Steele’s show on CKNW to talk with Jill Bennett on facial recognition technology in schools.
An upstate New York school district is giving its surveillance system a novel upgrade. Facial recognition technology soon will check each face against a database of expelled students, sex offenders and other possible trouble makers.
CKNW Interview Part One
I think the bigger problem is that overall messaging about responsibility about safety at schools is being undermined by the fact – here’s technology, we don’t trust you.
CKNW Interview Part Two
We live in a post-privacy world. We’re in a ‘surveillance state’. And, ultimately we’re volunteering more information ourselves through social media than we ever have done before.
The original show recording can be heard here at CKNW’s podcast.
