Arthur Holland Michel - Eyes in the Sky: The Secret Rise of Gorgon Stare and How It Will Watch Us All

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, June 25, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Co-founder of Bard College’s Center for the Study of the Drone, few have studied the revolutionary high-tech aerial surveillance systems developed by the military quite like Michel has. While older generations of aerial cameras capture a limited patch of ground, the advanced iterations allow operators to track multiple moving targets across city-sized areas. Combined with big-data analysis techniques, these systems have enormous potential to fight crimes and traffic control. They also have the power to give government a god’s eye view into the lives of citizens. In this chilling history and analysis of high-tech surveillance, Michel draws on access to key figures in the Pentagon and in the companies that created systems such as the Gorgon Stare, to reveal for the first time this unprecedented threat to privacy and freedom.
