We watched that last night.  It was very interesting the things they can do.  On the other hand, it's scary when they talk about the NYPD being able to link into all sorts of private cameras to hunt people down.

After a few hours, they all look like this guy.

The San Diego PD already operates a system of cameras that captures license plates throughout the city and records the time and location in a database, apparently forever. A random car can expect to be recorded a dozen times a year, and no doubt it won't be long until the system is expanded to where it's near continuous. When facial recognition matures, there's no reason that individuals and their movements couldn't be logged by the same system. Welcome to the future.

FTA  "I think our country should stop and have a conversation about what we're doing in creating a surveillance state. We haven't talked about the long-range consequences."

If only he had some means of having or starting that conversation, like a tv show or something.

Inventing data isn't exactly enhancing blurry pixels.

"You can't fool a thermal picture"

Yeah; there's no possible way to either create or suppress a heat source...

When I was helping the Border Patrol with their thermal imaging, they sent a guy out to the field we were looking at with a blanket. When he wrapped it around himself Dracula cape style, he vanished. If he kept it from close contact with his body, we couldn't see him.

And when can we expect the ability to uncrop pictures? It would be very beneficial to see beyond the face on certain websites.

show me: Jesus is watching you.

The scary thing about that show is that the only thing that's not currently possible with our current level of technology is the amount of storage all of that data would require.
