Title:
How smart is ‘smart security’? Exploring data subjectivity and resistance
Duration:
15/06/2015 to 01/10/2015
Abstract / short description:
This case study seeks to examine ethical and human rights implications of ’smart security’ systems
that operate based on population data at scale. The main point of inquiry is the qualitatively new
level of potential discrimination through automated algorithmic analyses of large datasets and the
possibility to enforce human rights by challenging security decisions based on algorithms.
