If you ever need to “ask for a friend” what the problem really is with Big Data and privacy: socialcooling.com
technology is progressing – now one plane is enough for a constant CCTV stream of every street from above:
“Watch This Surveillance Master Dissect a Murder From the Sky” https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-08-23/watch-this-surveillance-master-dissect-a-murder-from-the-sky
