10/8 (Tue.) The shadow behind the Technology (Host: Jason)

文章 swing0313 »

Hi, I'm Jason. I'll host on 10/8(Tue.)
The topic sounds tough but no need to be too serious.
instead of debating which is right, it's more like sharing the information.

Session I : Social Credit System

Recently, a Chinese MMA fighter, Xu Xiaodong got a “D” in his social credit score following a court order which limits his Civil right. He can’t take airplane, his account got frozen, he can't buy a house, he children can’t go to a better school…etc.

This is my first time to hear about this serious issue however China has already arrange for this scoring system since 2014.

Here’s the introduce of social credit system :
https://www.wired.co.uk/article/china-s ... -explained

In the Black mirror, the first episode of Series 3, “Nosedive”(急轉直下).
It’s a satire of the people living in a social credit system.
You can find it on the Netflix if you’re interested.

1. Pros & cons of the social credit system.
-->1a. Tell us about people break rules you have seem before(e.g., run a red light, fare evader). Would it be better is they are ruled under the social credit system.

-->1b. What do you think would happened if this system ran in Taiwan(in a bad way)

2. Will you get used to the system if it really runs on your country? Why or why not

3. If any of you watched Nosedive before what do you think the movie want to show us.

Session II : Who is listening

last month, I was assigned a job by collecting players behaviors using screen recording while they using our apps without notifying them.
So I started wondering what about other companies.
I searched on the google with the keyword “XXXX secretly ”
Like google secretly, apple secretly, cellphone secretly, government secretly.
Line secretly, WeChat secretly.

I found actually there are lot of controversial issue behind the technology product we’re using and we don’t have a sound law to protect us.

Google is listening!!

1. Do you think it’s ok if the tools you’re using are also collecting you data without your permission, even though they claim the data would not be leaked or just using it in a right way.

2. What would you do if you know you’re being tracked by your devices?

It's a good thing that they do this in China. Actually, I think they could add more things like "spitting", talking too loudly in public places", "cutting in line", "bullying", etc.. Who knows, maybe they can develop a system that actually works? Nothing is impossible, right? 8)
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
