Meet the Bogus Technology the Government Will Use to Frame You

03/01/20165 Comments

What happens if the facial recognition cameras get it wrong? Or the "visual microphone" detects the wrong sound? Or the emotion-reading or crime-predicting technology of the near future is just quackery, designed to frame anyone the government wants to convict? Sadly, this isn't sci-fi fantasy; it's the present and we're already living through it. Just ask Steve Talley...

    With the video-audio conversion stuff, I’m highly skeptical.

    It would seem the easiest way to get around this would be to inject extra music or background noise into any situation where this technique might be used – remember running the shower in all of those spy movies to defeat bugs?
    In their demo (assuming it wasn’t faked), the audio from the high-speed camera (framerate, please?) was severely degraded with a single sound source. If that music was playing over a conversation, the conversation would be unintelligible. No matter how many fractional pixels of plant movement you capture, multiple noises would intermodulate across that surface, making it nearly impossible to separate one from the rest. And at the standard 60 frame/sec capture rate, the resolution will be very much worse, as the demo shows. If this isn’t an outright fabricated technology, it is of limited usefulness, unless plotters are holding conversations in anechoic chambers.

    Play Led Zepplin when you discuss your secrets, and you need never fear this technology…

    I’ve often theorized that the individual governments of the world have been deliberately attempting to make themselves look bad through stories of “criminal incompetence” like this for some time now. To make themselves appear tyrannical to anger the people to try to spark a revolution in order to dissolve themselves into a single world government as the solution.

    With the argument being that the “former” system was corrupt from top to bottom and so now they’ve made a new system with new people and are starting from scratch. At which point you might see a massive dump of truth as justification for how corrupt the old system was and why they need this new one. Because it will be totally different this time, right?

    I believe it is a mistake for the activist community to think that they are winning the information war whenever mainstream media begins openly discussing stories such as this facial recognition failure. I don’t believe it is a matter of “Oh there’s too much pressure on them so they have to report on it” as the limited hangout argument goes. I don’t believe they’re that incompetent.

    Much like how the Bank of International Settlements appears to be building up clout by acting like the only voice of reason about the financial collapse. I think some facets of the activist community itself is being used to build up a similar form of clout about how governments, or at least the current form of government, is bad. I don’t think it would be difficult to destroy the concept of freedom in the minds of people if that is the case.

    Yes I know that’s all old news and we already know all that already but hey whatever, I still said it.

      Yep, I can hardly wait for the media-glossed, Hollywood-ified “revolution”, under whatever name given and under whatever rationale presented. People will seem to get some of what they can be convinced they actually wanted. In fact, those circumstances may be as good as it gets in this world.

      I believe it will be that way because it always is. History is a hard thing to beat.

    Actors are over-rated in our current society already. Now, the acting skills(aka deception, illusion)are even more valuable, especially to criminals, since we all now have a robotic audience to convince to suspend disbelief.

    It’s “Minority Report” come to fruition. Who didn’t see that?
