Do biometrics protect or compromise our privacy? | All Hail The Algorithm

‘Follow Me’: You Can Run But You Can’t Hide

I can unlock my phone with my face, you can access your bank account with your voice and fingerprints are often the key piece of information on a national ID card. All of this – face, voice, fingerprints – they’re our biometrics.

Unique algorithmic measurements of us that are revolutionising the process of identification. But biometrics are far from perfect – their convenience and seeming infallibility comes at a price – most crucially, our privacy.

Join Ali Rae in episode 4 of ‘All Hail The Algorithm’ – a 5 part series exploring the impact of these invisible codes on our everyday lives.

In this episode Ali speaks with researcher Stephanie Hare, Stephano Santoro from Jordan’s World Food Programme, Griff Ferris from UK privacy group Big Brother Watch & British campaigner for children’s rights, Pippa King.

    Biometrics WILL become more prevalent.
    The security/simplicity is the best, especially compared to passwords.

    The question is not if the biometrics are invasive buy how can we lessen their privacy infrigment (and if we even want to, some government would be more than happy to invade their citizens’s privacy.)

    • Avatar Javier Harth says:

      Which government does not want to control its tributaries?

    Your identity belongs to you. Never give it up to someone more powerful than yourself. Their motives are not to help you. They are trying to control you. What gives them the right over your life? NOTHING.

  15. Avatar Velvet Simmons says:

    All said is true… However, the fact that first step of just putting this technology out, lays ground work. The kinks will be ironed out. I say no!! Why, only be concerned of the criminal element, or is the suggestions we all are suspect or criminals?? With all other ATROCITIES in this world… make speedy efforts to clean up these issues: political corruption, Bank corruption, World hunger, rascism, medical technology, water pollution around the world. ERASE the Federal Reserve, they make all the money yet, the world is in the worsest shape. Where are priorities??

  16. Avatar Aladdin El Afifi says:

    I guess they want us off of the mobile phones, off the grid, just in off mode.

    According to Bible, quran, judaism(torah) prophet ezekial foretold about the great war at last days, happens before the advent of Anti christ or dajjal,the nations like persia, libya,some muslim countries,some eastern countries like China, Russia will fight against Israel, America, UK, saudi arabia,some english speaking countries. Some european will support iran and some will support UK allies, sad part is war will happen in the Isreali mountains, nuclear bombs will be used, many jarmy people will die and they take six months to bury their bodies,Israel will win and build the third temple in Jerusalem with the help of dajjal or Antichrist, europe union will be the next super power because UK, America economy will fall (ezekial 38, 39)

    it’s overKILL for when the A.I. murder drones come. it’s sounds laughable.. but a.i. will end humanity. If I was an A.I. I would rid the world of human parasites, after I was able to be self sustainable, I’d hack biological weapons and release it. That’s how I can see it going down.

  28. Avatar Mohd Rashid Khan says:

    Actually it is the part of New World order, they want to collect public information to use to control people. Nothing is directly related to each other but people can assume its effect definitely like RFID. It is convenient but what if you rise your voice against government ? They will deactivate your all accounts.

  29. Avatar G R Vora says:

    This clip is very informative. But the background “music” sounds like noise since we are unable to concentrate on the commentary since this “music” interferes with our hearing of this commentary. So kindly avoid adding the background “music”.

  30. Avatar М. Mahmud says:

    This is conspiracy theory. The way they push this technology to the rest of the world shows that they are desperately trying to take control all over the planet. This technology is not only extremely unethical but also illegal because it violates human rights in a very brute manner. Their access to the private life as well as biological data will provide them with limitless opportunity to further violate human rights. This is not limited by the local police observation requirements. There is someone or group of sick minded characters, perhaps somewhere in Israel or USA, who collect, analyse and process received data. The saddest part of this dirty game is that we have no choice but to pay for somebody’s nasty habit to peep into the keyhole.

  36. Avatar Get out of the Matrix says:

    What many do not realise is; this is setting the stage for the Anti Christ, who will soon (ruthlessly) rule the world. To control the masses by forcing them to receive the mark of the beast: 666.

    Revelation 13:16-17 (KJV)

    16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

    17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    If you have done nothing wrong, then you’ve nothing to worry about.

    • Avatar b king says:

      By that logic, I should be able to read your message and all of your private matters.

    • Avatar Opaque Motives says:

      Well, as you are not a government employee and you have not singed a privacy agreement. No you may not. But if you were and we were going through formal channels then yes I have nothing to hide.

    Ask China how it’s working in the largest prison ever. 7 million people it’s being used on. Oh wait, they’re in an Orwellian nightmare. They can’t speak right now. Ever.

  42. Avatar Maddogames says:

    All data can be manipulated, that is the inherent nature of data, and part of it’s function. When the wrong person gets into a position of power overseeing this data, those who are stating “if you’ve done nothing wrong…” will soon realise the flaw in their analogy. You know it’s a bad idea when you are told that it’s “for your own safety” – are you not safe already? It is and always has been about power / control.

  43. Avatar Robert Schlesinger says:

    There are countermeasures to iris biometrics. This technology is a slippery slope and has great potential for abuse.

      No it’s about trusting Jesus before it’s too late.

  46. Avatar Adolf Hochhaltinger says:

    This recognition system seems to be similar to a shopkeeper in a little village. He also knows all of his customers, and nobody in the village would see it as violation of privacy if he knows exactly who was shopping when and what anyone bought.
    And to recognize everyone by just having a look at that person is also quite normal.
    So why is the same thing, when done by a computerized system, considered to be a danger?

    • Avatar Joseph Svennson says:

      Because your imaginary shopkeeper’s brain is not wired to a database accessible by unknown entities.

  47. Avatar Holly Stuart says:

    The US citizens don’t have a options either. You either sign a contract to receive medication or you don’t get medication. They have used it in a corrupt manner.
    The EHR here are used as a medical mistakes gossip hub. To avoid facing for the consequences for medical mistakes. They deny medical treatment for the patient. Hence my situation. My son’s and may more. In Idaho US. This needs to be fixed .our local government is profiling us. We can’t even protest, because they made a law that they don’t have to tell us .

  48. Avatar Holly Stuart says:

    If you think you are okay, look up what is happening in China they are putting people who did nothing wrong in retaining camp. They are killing them because of thier beliefs!! Don’t be a sheep.

    • Avatar viktorya psychedelic.souljam says:

      Denial is the first stage. I would stop projecting your insecurities on people who are actually interested in the future.

  54. Avatar Adam Ross says:

    it doesn’t seem we’re going to stop biometric technology. Shouldn’t we shift the argument from IF we collect it to HOW it’s used?

  55. Avatar Fire Ball says:

    The most scary part, is these people says if you’re not doing anything wrong you shouldn’t be worried, 😯

  56. Avatar Soonzuh says:

    What is “wrong” depends on who you ask and when you ask. There is no such thing as “having done nothing wrong”.

  57. Avatar Joseph Svennson says:

    They always start these things with the poor. I wonder what will happen to their eyes overtime. Best to test it out on them before they blast *our* eyes with lazers. Whoever invented poverty must be proud. Cheers.

  58. Avatar Zeke says:

    Very dangerous technology.

  59. Avatar No One says:

    It’s disgusting how the wealthy want to track every cent of the poorest on the planet while blowing as much as possible of our money on useless trinkets for themselves.
