NVIDIA working on technology to realise 1984-style society

Fingerprinting and face recognition technology will allow for surveillance in a hyperconnected slave grid. It is called by many, “affective computing” or the ability to easily and instantly recognize you enywhere on the planet. You are right in thinking that there is nothing new on this topic, because social media and technology companies have been at it for a long time. Except that the coming surveillance state is orders ...Read full article...

Get rid of those pesky ads that follow you online

Some people call it personality-based advertising, but others call it invasion of privacy. Do you know how is it that those pesky, targeted ads that follow you everywhere you go online actually work? We are already so accustomed that we hardly notice it, but seeing ads for products and services that you just searched is still uncomfortable, when not annoying. Where did you get that information? How do they ...Read full article...

Cloud Act is a Backdoor to Spy on European People and Companies

New law allows the United States to access data from companies and users located in the European Union. While in Europe parties focus on the entry into force of the General Data Protection Regulation, on March 23, there was another legislative novelty in the United States that will have a great impact on the privacy of citizens and businesses in the European Union: the approval of the Cloud Act. ...Read full article...

Video surveillance in public spaces and consumer devices that observe us

Public spaces are under constant surveillance. Hypervigilance is not so evident when we walk through the streets, but it exists: in addition to cameras, even the wastebaskets and telephone booths extract data to try to identify people. Despite not having a clear objective in most cases, the faces, habits and actions of citizens are unified in databases and we have no control over the information that the system collects ...Read full article...

Facebook knows how you’re feeling

Facebook continues to defy all the limits of intrusion. It does not seem like an easy task to choose a filter for a “selfie”. The matter gets even more complicated when, as in the case of Facebook, there are around 50 different options to choose from. What if you wear glasses, if it’s the face of a lion, if it’s a black and white photo… Facebook seems to have ...Read full article...

Everyone knew about Facebook Privacy Violations

The former head of Operations of Facebook confesses he could not continue working there knowing what they were doing. Sandy Parakilas’ job was to monitor the privacy of Facebook users’ data, to ensure that no third-party software was left with personal information. He was the Director of Operations of the social network until 2012 when he decided to abandon the technology giant because of his disagreement with its privacy ...Read full article...

We’re being programmed by social media

Facebook admitted that they were performing psychological experiments on users. You may not be on social media yourself, but chances are your friends and family are. Some of us are on there for work purposes and some so we can keep in touch with loved ones who live far away. There are valid reasons we have accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. But things are getting ugly out there ...Read full article...

Dragonfly Eye Algorithm: Big Brother speaks Chinese

Perhaps the single most successful lie told by authorities worldwide is that people must be under continuous surveillance to remain safe. This excuse comes second to none, not even convenience, which is the reason why most people sacrifice their privacy. A third, interesting fact is that among the masses, most people still believe that the government knows how to protect them best. The artificially created safety dependence gave way to ...Read full article...

Facebook is a hotbed for Illegal Harvesting of Information

Facebook wants and has more information from you than your friends’ list or your geolocation. The controversy that is revolving around Facebook does not stop, at least not completely. When Mark Zuckerberg testified before the US Senate, many facts and doubts came to light. This is one of the reasons why the platform decided to implement “greater transparency” in its conditions and with it, that users could decide what ...Read full article...

Facebook spies on your Messenger conversations

Some of the most disgraceful crimes in history continue to be perpetrated by out-of-control forces. Although spying on someone’s private conversations may not be classified as a crime against humanity, but the reason why Facebook continues to violate even its own privacy laws seems to be justified with the premise that it carries out the spying to “protect” children. What a noble lie! Who would be against protecting the ...Read full article...

Confession: This is how Facebook steals your Attention

The key that opened to door for Facebook is apparently, dopamine. To get people to stay on Facebook for a long time, you have to generate dopamine discharges. These discharges are ephemeral instants of happiness and those moments go hand in hand with the LIKES and SHARES. The Modus Operandi of Facebook is based on its explicit “exploitation of the vulnerability of human psychology,” confesses Sean Parker, one of ...Read full article...

Nobody is safe on the Internet

Internet crime, cyberwar and cyberespionage are some of the most popular terms in the tech world. The boogeyman of the 20th century was so-called Islamic Terrorism. In the 21st century, what keeps people awake the most are Cyberthreats. Today, online threats are the greatest risk to personal and corporate security, and we must try to understand who has the power to threaten us, to know what we can do to ...Read full article...

Facebook and its Open War on Independent Media

Facebook excuses its censorship on a plea to “end disinformation” and “sensationalism” on the internet. It will not be enough to have a large audience or be registered as a medium, Facebook wants to measure the trust that the media possess to prioritize their content on the social network. As of Friday, more than 2 billion active service profiles will see 4% of content generated by professional pages instead ...Read full article...

Facial Recognition: Convenience vs Privacy

SÃO PAULO – Facial recognition technology comes loaded with comfort, yes, promises of greater security, okay. But it also comes loaded with a major, yet often ignored inconvenience: Violation of Privacy. In parallel, the expansion of an entire security industry revolves around it and slowly but surely society turns into the Orwellian nightmare of a place of controlled citizens. Derived from artificial intelligence, facial recognition took its first steps ...Read full article...

The Social Media Pyramid Scam

Social media personalities generated more than $4 billion in one year for large social media pyramid scam users. A pyramid scheme or as I prefer to call it, pyramid scam, is a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments for enrolling others into the scheme scam, rather than supplying investments or sale of products or services. Social media are a hidden, nonetheless an out-in-the-open version of ...Read full article...
