#Apple #VisionPro #EyeTracking #Privacy #Surveillance: "The specific privacy implications of eye tracking have received much attention by both researchers and in the popular press. At a basic level, eye gaze can indicate our general level of interest in what we look at. Eye movements can be used to infer a person’s age and gender, as well as medical conditions, fatigue, or other impairments. While there may be other ways for companies to learn this information, gleaning these insights from eye data is problematic because of how involuntary many of our eye movements can be.

We often don’t realize how little control over our eyes that we have. Companies may argue that eye tracking should be treated as analogous to mouse movements, but we don’t realize how little control over our vision we truly have. Eye movements are also harder to disguise. For instance, my mouse was hovering over my desktop menu when I originally typed this sentence. My eyes? They’ve not just fixated on the last letter I typed, but have darted over to my television and plenty of other places I cannot consciously recall."

There's a lot I could write about the inaccuracies here, but I will say there's a fundamental misunderstanding of the concept of aggregation that's applied in our case amongst other issues.

#USA #PublicHousing #Surveillance #Privacy: "Well, in many cases, I've found the residents are not aware of the cameras or any kind of policies around them. And most of the cases I found the housing authorities haven't really kind of laid out policies around how they are going to use these cameras.

So I think what you could see for going forward is more of a dialogue about, you know, what should we allow these cameras abused for with should they not be allowed to use for. But yes, the consequences can be very severe when people lose their home in public housing. Oftentimes, they end up homeless because public housing, they're often at the end of the rope, and they don't have any other options. That's why they are living in government subsidized housing.

And when they are evicted from their home, they often not only are homeless, but their future opportunities for employment and housing are severely diminished."

#XR #VR #AR #AI #Privacy #DataProtection: "Extended reality technologies (XR), which include Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), are rapidly maturing and becoming more prevalent to a wider audience, especially as the pandemic drives more people to virtual activities. This technology provides the promise to entertain and educate, to connect and enhance our lives, and even to help advocate for our rights. But it also raises the risk of eroding them online. The headsets and devices can gather deeply personal information about you and the world around you, and the XR services often store this data within their servers. And by introducing artificial intelligence to XR, the privacy and security hazards are augmented, too, as the devices and services gather and analyze data at an unprecedented level."

Bulk interception and surveillance hasn’t stopped, despite there now being greater transparency and more oversight. “There are a few more safeguards, but mostly it continues,” Caroline Wilson Palow, the legal director at Privacy International (PI), told me. The greatest legacy of Snowden’s leaks are the legal challenges they have made possible. Until these revelations, it was nearly impossible to bring a legal case challenging state surveillance. There have now been several successful lawsuits."

#USA #GeofenceWarrants #Surveillance #Privacy #PoliceState #Geofencing: "The unexpectedly bipartisan efforts against geofence warrants provide a rare glimmer of hope that perhaps the fight against invasive surveillance could be a more collaborative one. Conservatives and progressives alike both worry about the dangers of government overreach enabled by dragnet searches like those facilitated through geofence warrants. And while protecting Americans from surveillance abuses has rarely been a legislative priority, geofence searches are so offensive to the Constitution that this campaign could provide a playbook for bringing both parties together on other privacy issues."

No conspiracy needed: just human nature, economic incentives, and poor regulatory oversight.

No company has an incentive to respect #privacy; only to make everyone believe that it respects privacy, and to avoid being caught.

You presume innocence just because #Apple is seems an outlier among big tech. What is more likely: that Apple alone is unique in its strategy and goals, or that it’s better at doing fishy things surreptitiously? I say we can’t be reasonably confident it’s the former.

In today’s world, AI systems are used to decide who gets hired, the quality of medical treatment we receive, and whether we become a suspect in a police investigation. While these tools show great promise, they can also harm vulnerable and marginalized people, and threaten civil rights. Unchecked, unregulated and, at times, unwanted, AI systems can amplify racism, sexism, ableism, and other forms of discrimination.

The Algorithmic Justice League’s mission is to raise awareness about the impacts of AI, equip advocates with empirical research, build the voice and choice of the most impacted communities, and galvanize researchers, policy makers, and industry practitioners to mitigate AI harms and biases.
