I am trying to read the Data Sharing Bill. #dsbill

Why. Why is it like this?

"Base registry". "Base registry owner." It is not just the Data Sharing Bill, but the Data Sharing And Governance Bill.

The Governance part, one might have thought, is covered by the GDPR & DPAs. But no, it creates a shadow system.

The State continues to be, imo, entirely disingenuous about the #psc rollout and is still pushing it through without proper legal basis or authority so that it reaches critical mass.

One thing is clear: they are avoiding any binding decisions on the PSC. #thread

📷: @DRIalerts You might recall that, since @RSAIreland backtracked on requiring #PSC for driving licences, passports are effectively the last non-social welfare holdout on mandatory/compulsory use.

This type of requirement is what takes it from mere "token" to de facto ID card.

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.
