Houston Police Choose Surveillance Over Presence at Super Bowl

"Margaret Hu is an associate professor of law at the Washington and Lee University School of Law who has studied the surveillance techniques used by IBM at Boston Calling.

“Situational awareness programs like the one used at the Boston Calling concerts demonstrate that the technological capabilities for using biometric capture and recognition software in real time are expanding significantly. These programs are highly experimental and the efficacy and accuracy of such systems is still unknown,” wrote Hu, in a chapter titled “Biometric Surveillance and Big Data,” in The Cambridge Handbook on Surveillance Law, which is due to be published this year by the Cambridge University Press."
