Dr Armin Krishnan has discussed the notion of the uberveillance society in his INTELLIGENCE course INSS 5380 titled, "Selected Problems In Intelligence: Technical Intelligence – History And Transformation" at the University of Texas at El Paso. On the 4th of May 2011, Dr Krishnan will deliver a lecture on "Domestic Spying: the Uberveillance Society" in which he will discuss aspects of CCTV, RFID, biometrics and ANPR. Students have an opportunity to think critically by addressing an optional essay question in the course as follows:

"To what extent can increasing technological capabilities for domestic spying actually deliver improved security for a society? Why is the attempt of creating an ‘uberveillance society’ deeply problematic?"
