MACHINE MULTI-AGENT SYSTEM AS CYBORG MACRO-ORGANISM
Keywords: - Surveillance - - WAPS - - JLENS - - Singularity - - Artificial Intelligence - - Machine -
Humans and Machines - robots, computers, software, vehicles, power grids, drones - now form an energy-dependent Cyborg Macro-organism capable of defending itself and propagating. This modern global machine Multi-Agent System engages in a symbiotic relationship with humans to meet the machine challenges of energy demand, fossil fuel dependency, resource-driven conflict and ultimately the further propagation of energy-dependent machines and industrialization.


COMMUNITY CORRESPONDENCE: U.S. Senator Rand Paul to Teame Zazzu
Keywords: - - - Drones -
"Although the U.S. military has successfully used drones overseas for years, law enforcement at every level is starting to expand their use here in the United States. Federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security use drones in order to monitor and crackdown on illegal border crossings. Other federal uses of drones are less defensible..."


CRASH RESPONSE: Teame Zazzu joined local law enforcement and emergency response agencies to demonstrate a typical combined emergency response to an fatal emergency scenario
Keywords: - Readiness - - -
The public demonstration involved police, firefighters, EMT, and Airmed rescue transportation helicopters. It showed the aftermath of a fatal accident involving an intoxicated driver with passenger colliding with an occupied vehicle containing a mother and child.


JLENS = MASS GEOLOCATION TRACKING: While government representatives maintain that JLENS will not collect "any personably identifiable information" and "it cannot track individual people" these assertions do not hold up under closer scrutiny. In fact, JLENS will indefinitely collect geo-location data on every civilian vehicle for hundreds of miles, data that can easily reveal the identity of those being tracked, even without the help of the immersive surveillance sensor networks
Keywords: - Surveillance - - JLENS - - WAPS -
Geo-location radar chronographs generated by JLENS are similar to cellphone metadata, in that they can be used to track individuals over time and across great distance. This geo-location metadata is used to form pattern-of-life data and map movements of individuals


COMMUNITY CORRESPONDENCE: Jay Stanley, Senior Policy Analyst Speech, Privacy and Technology Program Editor, Free Future blog The American Civil Liberties Union, responds to Teame Zazzu
Keywords: - -
"I am especially interested in the state of automated location-trail tracking technology, and it would be great if I could point people to evidence that the state of the art is already advanced."
