Carbon Footprint Data

From the word Bio – meaning life, and Metric – to measure, ‘Biometrics’ are systems used for private and public gathering of data and information for surveillance, identification and security.

The unique individual human electro-magnetic pulse – signature – of citizens, can be tracked (carbon footprints) with precision. All movements and activities are automatically recorded, stored and archived for reference and as a form of tight security and protection.

In government, biometrics are also applied in the use of gathering statistical data and analysis of individuals unique physical and behavioural patterns, these include:

  1. Facial recognition.
  2. Palm and finger prints.
  3. Retina scanning
  4. Vein and iris recognition
  5. Voice recognition
  6. DNA – deoxyribonucleic acid matching.

Behavioural identifiers also includes the unique ways in which a person act and respond, are also recorded as data. Biometrics also recognise unique typing patterns, finger movements on a keyboard. Website visits and other patterns of media engagement. All habitual gestures can also be recorded and analysed.

However, there are major worries and concerns about the operators of the Biometric systems. What mechanisms are in place to prevent abuse and restrict misuse. Powerful digital tools and technology have proven to be open for all types of misuse. New inventions are not inherently good or bad, it is how they are applied and utilised that ultimately determine the value in serving the needs of the general public. In the wrong hands, the tools and equipment for the most good can be transformed into something to execute the worst damage.

In the cities that never sleep, swamped with bright lights and high rigid surveillance, everyone is on-screen. No place to hide or run where your carbon-footprint will not be identified, when questioned by the authorities speak the truth, plain truth as you it. Come clean, no lies. DRC – Deep Roots Collective.
