078 Kade Crockford: You Are Under Surveillance

Play
Read more

Are you online? Have you ever been online? Do you have a phone? You have a digital footprint. Many of us have heard of this phrase, but what actually is it, and what does it mean. In this episode, Therese Markow and Kade Crockford discuss just that. From the Cambridge Analytica Scandal, to the changing purpose of fusion centers and government databases, and what companies know about us from just three main sources. The government has tried to use these databases as surveillance to create predictive models, however, many reports have come out and disproven the effectiveness of these models, yet they continue to be in use based on those sources. This creates additional problems with the 1st and 4th Amendment rights. 

 Key Takeaways:

  • In the United States, unlike in Europe, we lack any comprehensive consumer privacy law that is sufficiently protective of our rights and our interests in an era in which digital technologies are ubiquitous.
  • The idea that the FBI should be wiretapping every single person who has anti-black or anti-Jewish, or anti-gay political views is not possible, because there are so many of those people. And it wouldn't make sense from a public safety perspective, because the vast majority of people who hold even extremist political views will never commit extremist political violence.
  • The Department of Homeland Security found that predictive modeling was not a useful tactic when it comes to anti-terrorism or counterterrorism. House Republicans put out a report, finding that fusion centers had produced little to no intelligence of value, had violated civil rights and civil liberties of both people on the left and the right, and had contributed nothing to the nation's fight against terrorism.
  • These are political problems. These are all infrastructures and architectures and political and legal systems that human beings created. So we can change them, we absolutely have the power to change them. 

"It shouldn't be that we leave it up to the user, the end-user, the consumer of consumer technologies, to be a privacy expert, to be a lawyer, to be able to read and understand these complex terms of service agreements or privacy policies, particularly in a situation in which people don't have a lot of alternatives to using those products." —  Kade Crockford

071 Kade Crockford: Dangers of Facial Recognition Systems

Play
Read more

Today’s episode revolves around the development and use of facial recognition systems.  How do they work?  Who uses them?  Kade Crockford of the Massachusetts American Civil Liberties Union’s Technology for Liberty Program discusses a wide range of commercial and law enforcement uses of the technology and the potential for violation of First and Fourth Amendment rights.  Because the technology and its uses are unregulated, and because the National Institute of Standards and Technology have found serious biases in the way they function, the public needs to be aware of these systems and how they are used.

 Key Takeaways:

  • There are numerous companies creating and selling facial recognition systems to both commercial and law enforcement entities
  • All of the systems have biases and unfortunately, the misidentification is greatest for people of color.
  • There is no federal, state, or municipal regulation of these systems and their use.
  • Several cities have recently made it illegal for them to be used in law enforcement.

"The effect is to deny people, en masse, their due process rights.  Not only that individual defendants don't get their fair day in court and may be wrongfully convicted, but also that the society at large can't benefit from the really important constitutional litigation that would result if defendants were notified properly of the use of this technology in their criminal cases." —  Kade Crockford
