This is the week that the drone surveillance state became real

Not only do local police now have access to drones, but footage from those flying cameras will be automatically analyzed by AI systems not disclosed to the public





Affordable consumer technology has made surveillance cheap and commoditized AI software has made it automatic.

Those two trends merged this week, when drone manufacturer DJI partnered June 5 with Axon, the company that makes Taser weapons and police body cameras, to sell drones to local police departments around the United States. Now, not only do local police have access to drones, but footage from those flying cameras will be automatically analyzed by AI systems not disclosed to the public.

Footage will be uploaded or streamed to Axon’s digital cloud for police cameras, like the body cameras it currently sells, where it can be analyzed by Axon’s AI and used for anything from crowd monitoring to search and rescue, the company writes on its website.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

Dear valued reader,

The time to TAKE ACTION has never been more crucial than now.

Major corporations such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter have recently banded together to attack and limit free speech on the Internet. The social media giants and others are in an all-out push to limit and eventually rid the interwebs of outspoken and politically conservative sites like Intellihub.com. 

That's why now more than ever it's absolutely imperative that we have your full support and help to offset some of the expense associated with this site's operation.

So please, I beg, do not let this well-known and well-respected one of a kind website go by the wayside.

Chip in. It all helps.

So far this month we have raised $607/1000 goal. Help us reach our goal!

Sincerely,

Shepard Ambellas Founder Intellihub.com
