Richard Stallman - "Are we facing surveillance like in China?" (Frankfurt, Germany)
Jul 15, 2019
from 07:30 PM to 10:00 PM
|Where||Frankfurt am Main, Germany|
Digital technology has enabled governments to impose surveillance that Stalin could only dream of, making it next to impossible to talk with a reporter (or do most things) unmonitored. This puts democracy and human rights in danger, as illustrated by the totalitarian regime of China today.
Stallman will present the absolute upper limit on surveillance of the public compatible with democracy, and present ways to design systems that don't collect dossiers on people, except those designated by courts based on valid specific suspicion of crime.
This speech by Richard Stallman will be nontechnical, admission is gratis, and the public is encouraged to attend.
Location: Festsaal, Casino (#7), Campus Westend, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main, Grüneburgplatz 1, 60323 Frankfurt
