IBM Used NYPD Surveillance Footage to Develop Technology That Lets Police Search by Skin Color:
(George Joseph, Kenneth Lipp) In the decade after the 9/11 attacks, the New York City Police Department moved to put millions of New Yorkers under constant watch. Warning of terrorism threats, the department created a plan to carpet Manhattan’s downtown streets with thousands of cameras and had, by 2008, centralized its video surveillance operations to a single command center. Two years later, the NYPD announced that the command center, known as the Lower Manhattan Security Coordination Center, had integrated cutting-edge video analytics software into select cameras across the city.
My Commentary: This company is always at the cutting-edge of human rights violations.
