Ethical design of surveillance infrastructures
Have now just about got over the jet lag from my trip to Austin for the university's workshop on the ethical design of surveillance infrastructures. I did wonder beforehand if this was an oxymoron, but the participants came up with some useful ideas on turning surveillance technologies towards ethical ends.
In classic workshop stylee, one of the things we did was to produce posters illustrating our ideas. Above is my small group's efforts on the principles that would inform ethical surveillance technology. What an artistic masterpiece!
