Policing the Romantic Crowd -- Velocipedes and Face Recognition
Anne Marggraf-Turley and Richard Marggraf Turley.
Hamburg, Germany; 27th December 2013.
A presentation as part of 'Chaos Communication Congress' by the Chaos Computer Club, that reflects on the use of new technology to police large crowds by drawing historical roots from the Romantic period (~1800s). The ethical aspects of modern surveillance technologies are examined by looking at debates around crowd control and face recognition in the age that first imagined, and reflected on, the surveillance state.
