In today's information-starved and fear-driven society, surveillance technology seems to be deployed almost everywhere-and a surveillance mind-set is just as ubiquitous. This program introduces students to the concept of a "surveillance society" and shows how cutting-edge tools are being developed to identify, monitor, and track both people and objects. Viewers are empowered to explore the central paradox of surveillance technology-specifically, that it seems to bring advantages, making us safer and our lives more convenient, but at what cost to privacy and individual freedoms?
