Terrifying AI-fused data-gathering tech (not neuro-link)

29 Mar

Ok, watch this video. Tell me what you think.

The breakdown is that students are required to wear these EEG headsets in order for teachers, schools, parents (and others) to gather data about the students’ real-time attentiveness in class. Students appear to feel the devices hurt. Others are being punished at home when the trackers demonstrate the students are not paying attention.

Pairing with this technology appears to be data-sensing equipment that is tracking eye-movement.

In other classes, sensors are gathering movement of the limbs and torsos of students in real-time, and in other classes robots are monitoring the health and engagement of learners.

Data is constantly tracking where students are and if they are in attendance at the school.

The video also demonstrates how people can make purchases with their faces and persistent surveillance cameras monitor citizens through facial recognition.

Feels eerily like some episodes of Black Mirror – which are highly dystopian in their framework.

Ok, watch it again. Write your thoughts.

    This technology is so scary I am glad I am old enough not to ever have to deal with it!

      But it is here…I see there is now a call from Elon Musk, heads of Apple, and many academics for a 6 month freeze on AI, while the world tries to get it under control and before it takes too much control.
