Speakers: Matjaz Vidmar

Satellite images now cover every inch of the world. Is this the invasion of privacy and major challenge to human rights that it is often argued to be, or is Big Brother really still quite tame? Putting aside legitimate concerns about some aspects of classified military use, is it fair to say that the majority of satellite images benefit our daily lives more than they intrude?

Matjaz Vidmar, an up-and-coming researcher from the University of Edinburgh, votes for letting Big Brother watch. Are you with him, or can you live without Google Earth?

Performer: Matjaz Vidmar, PhD student in Science, Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, The University of Edinburgh
