David Phillips on Surveillance and QS

David Philips is a professor at the University of Toronto who studies surveillance. He’s interested in democratizing infrastructures of surveillance and using surveillance data for things other than population control, such as creating senses of self and community. In the video below, he gives an interesting talk about what he has learned about the why and how of Quantified Self through his academic lens, followed by a great discussion. (Filmed by the Toronto QS Show&Tell meetup group.)

    This was a great video and very interesting project of using surveillance for personal worth. I do not mind the population control like the surveillance Toronto Airport uses to look for potential threats. It makes me feel safer. But it can become invasive.
