Government-funded artificial intelligence cameras and sensors used in UK towns to monitor social distancing

Big Brother Watch Team / October 7, 2020

Following media reports that Government-funded artificial intelligence cameras and sensors (provided by Vivacity Labs), which can be used to monitor social distancing, are in use in UK towns, we sent a letter to the Transport Secretary to ask important questions about privacy and our data rights.

We also sent a letter to Kent County Council, which reportedly is planning to use the cameras.
