Edward Snowden’s Tweet That Exposed What Our TV’s Are Doing To Us

This means that they can watch you as you watch TV. The technology records where your eyes are looking, facial expressions and more.Reflect On:What happened to privacy? How are these companies allowed to role out such technologies without the consent of the masses? Years ago, Edward Snowden accomplished one of the most significant intelligence leaks in U.S. history, confirming to the world that the government really does spy on you. Two years later, Samsung casually warned the public that their Smart TVs could record their living room banter. Now, even if you’re alone in a room, if that room contains a laptop, computer, or Smart TV, it’s possible that someone out there is listening to you, and even watching you.

Cybersecurity to Guard Against Brain Hacking

Imagine what information may be gleaned with access to your thoughts. The development of brain-machine interfaces forces us to consider this issue, as these devices are capable of connecting computers directly to the brain. Science and neurotechnology haven’t come far enough to enable mind-reading, but already there are consumer-grade devices which can register delicate neural signals. Electroencephalography (EEG) headsets, for instance, are used in marketing studies to analyse emotions and unconscious reactions to certain products or events.

5G Is The “Stupidest Idea In The History of The World”- Says Washington State Professor

Pall, PhD and Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University outlines in a new report the many health risks associated with 5G technology and wireless radiation in general.Reflect On:5G is gaining attention, and it might make us a little fearful of the effects, but we must observe this fear and bring things back to awareness of the issue so we can make better choices, but not be fearful. We are in the midst of a 5G wireless technology rollout, and politicians have yet to address safety concerns. I recently wrote about Robert F. Kennedy explaining how this came to be, and how they’ve been able to completely compromise government, big media, and our federal regulatory agencies that are supposed to be protecting and informing us.

Slaughterbots: They Cannot Be Stopped (WATCH) [SM] The Future of Life Institute (an AI watchdog organization that has made a name for itself through its campaign to stop killer robots) released a nightmarish short film imagining a future where smart drones kill.

Slaughterbots: They Cannot Be Stopped (WATCH)

The short is called ‘Slaughterbots,’ and it channels the near-future dystopias depicted in Black Mirror in an attempt to raise awareness about the dangers of autonomous weapons. According to disclose: You can’t actually stop autonomous weapons. They are pretty much guaranteed at this point.And for anyone who thinks little drones like these are not possible… machine learning has already helped small drones teach themselves to perform aerial maneuvers that human controllers cannot possibly perform.Slaughterbots is a disturbing short film by the group the “Campaign to Stop Killer Robots“.

Big data meets Big Brother as China moves to rate its citizens. On June 14, 2014, the State Council of China published an ominous-sounding document called "Planning Outline for the Construction of a Social Credit System".

Big data meets Big Brother as China moves to rate its citizens

In the way of Chinese policy documents, it was a lengthy and rather dry affair, but it contained a radical idea. What if there was a national trust score that rated the kind of citizen you were? Imagine a world where many of your daily activities were constantly monitored and evaluated: what you buy at the shops and online; where you are at any given time; who your friends are and how you interact with them; how many hours you spend watching content or playing video games; and what bills and taxes you pay (or not). It's not hard to picture, because most of that already happens, thanks to all those data-collecting behemoths like Google, Facebook and Instagram or health-tracking apps such as Fitbit.

Digital demens drabbar barn. Nanotechnology in Our Food. Nanotechnology is a powerful but novel platform for taking apart and reconstructing nature at the atomic and molecular level with important human and environmental health ramifications. Common food related products that contain nanotechnology include candies (M&M’s, Skittles), baby bottles, and plastic storage containers.

While scientists agree that nanomaterials create novel risks that require new forms of toxicity testing, very little testing and regulation of these new products exists, and consumers have almost no information. CFS built this database as a step to fill the information gap, to alert consumers of just how widespread this technology is, and to improve transparency in our food supply. This database is regularly updated. If you see something that catches your attention or if you have any questions, please contact NanoAction@CenterforFoodSafety.org.
