This is the whole story when I was slapped in the face during #CPC18
Fiona Bruce MP, chair of @CPHumanRights and @benedictrogers, chair of @hk_watch, cohosted a fringe event on Hong Kong’s erosion of freedom. Martin Lee QC, @yttai and @nathanlawkc were the speakers #CPC18 1/8
The event focused on China’s continued suppression of Hong Kong human rights and China’s breach of the Joint-Deceleration. @nathanlawkc told the audience how he was jailed and ousted from HK parliament, @yttai talked about sharp and hard power of China in HK. #CPC18 2/8
At the end of the event, a woman with a press pass, later learnt she works for Chinese state-controlled #CCTV, shouted at @benedictrogers from her seat, accusing him of trying to separate China, and the rest of the panel were puppets and fake Chinese. #CPC18 3/8

I’ve been quoted saying Limerick’s #cctv scheme uses tech akin to regimes like China. I don’t make comparison lightly - seems alarmist but is literally true.

Via @FredPLogue I see alarming prospect that deep learning & AI envisaged. This slide from a @LimerickCouncil update.
Remember: this deep learning and AI would be overlayed on a network of cameras that count footfall, keep a record of the reg of every car passing (24hrs/day), can recognise faces and patterns.
These technologies only make sense (or value for money) if you have software (and algorithms) that can process the vast amounts of data collected. And use the results to what? Create reports? Alerts?
