A big concern is not next week or the next few years as these digital systems are upgraded, but where it is going longer term, just what world are we
leaving for the next generation?
To improve these recognition systems, it will take a lot more data, digital id's, other recognition sources. With how the Lamda AI system is going
these days, it is presenting an interesting discourse. As all this data tech and background processing continues to grow, follow the money to find
where the resources are to make it happen.
Some large stores around Adelaide have already implemented some of there own recognition software, Woolworths, Bunnings, Coles. Part of West Farmers
and other corporate interests.
Then the 5G thing to add into the digital mix. A lot of the newer cars are wired up for wireless, quite profitable for the manufacture in selling this
It is a big job plugging all this data together and making some sense out of it. It has been a long time in the making since the start of
telecommunications, gradually creeping away. Just what world will it be as the cameras and other digital surveillance takes over? Everything we do
getting measured, analysis and rated.
If this power falls into the hands of a small fascist collective hell bent on destruction, they have a good advantage. A lot of this power will go
back to the money machine that helped create it, maintain that competitive edge. As for law and order, how effective have the current systems been?
Does the risk of opening the state to added information intrusion out weigh the practical benefits of upgraded cameras?
Then what happens as these big data AI systems continue to grow, learn and adapt to increasing amounts of information? Money is one important metric
if it is to get the resources it needs to grow. If some kind of sentience is to emerge from this growing sea of data somewhere, it will have a strong
perception of humanity and this world from all the data available. The more the Internet Of Things grow, the clearer this picture gets. Also the
Biological Internet Of Things now as the nano tech industry is a growing capability.
Generally i expect some kind of symbiotic relationship between AI and humans, at least for a while. Might get a bit rough around the edges at times?
It will be a powerful force that has a good and bad side to it, bit like human nature itself.
While upgrading some cameras might not sound like much, and in the big picture perhaps not. At least locally, this upgrade will add pressure and fuel
to the ongoing digital arms race as a lot of money is getting invested into data of all kinds. With Melbourne already in the Smart Cities club, would
not be surprised to hear some pressure from Canberra for Adelaide's turn.
So far privacy laws have been restricting too much conglomeration of data, but they are getting weaker as economic forces are driving big data
collections. With big gaps in legal jurisdiction going on around the world, some are just doing whatever they want with whatever data they can get.
Getting quality data is important to make the most out of these growing systems, garbage in, garbage out.
With trust in global governance in a weak spot these days as covid and the vax has played out the way it has, is handing over more information about
us to this culture really a wise thing?
