Roundtable: Do 'smart cities' breach privacy rights?


Roundtable: Do '
    CCTV and the latest in artificial intelligence - it's opened up endless possibilities for monitoring people.  But is it giving authorities too much control over citizens?
    China is building hundreds of what it calls smart cities - where data on people and their movements are collected to manage everything from traffic congestion, rubbish, shopping and suspicious behaviour.  But at what point does efficiency become something more intrusive?
    At the Roundtable was Simon Sylvester-Chaudhuri, Executive Director at CIV: LAB and an advocate of smart cities; Dal Babu, former Chief Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police; Dr Enver Tohti Bughda, an independent researcher and journalist Mary-Ann Russon.
    Roundtable is a discussion programme with an edge. Broadcast out of London and presented by David Foster, it's about bringing people to the table, listening to every opinion, and analysing every point of view. From fierce debate to reflective thinking, Roundtable discussions offer a different perspective on the issues that matter to you. Watch it every weekday at 15:30 GMT on TRT World.

    1. Any power given to government will be abused. History proves this truism. This will be the death of privacy and ultimately the death of individual (ie. human) rights. The future will be very dark and bloody in coming generations unless we course correct and again place more value on freedom than on security.
