“China’s concept of privacy is more like Europe, trusting the government to protect people and manage society, but mistrusting companies that only care about profit,” said Martin Chorzempa, fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. “The government can manage this distinction so long as the impact of surveillance does not become too onerous or intrusive.”

The Unlikely Activists Who Took On Silicon Valley — and Won - The New York Times
The surveillance capitalists didn’t just sell more deodorant; they had built one of the most powerful tools ever invented for winning elections. Roughly the same suite of technologies helped elect Obama, a pragmatic liberal who promised racial progress and a benevolent globalism, and Trump, a strident nationalist who adeptly employs social media to stoke racial panic and has set out to demolish the American-led world order.

Alexa and Siri Can Hear This Hidden Command. You Can’t. - The New York Times
Over the past two years, researchers in China and the United States have begun demonstrating that they can send hidden commands that are undetectable to the human ear to Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Assistant. Inside university labs, the researchers have been able to secretly activate the artificial intelligence systems on smartphones and smart speakers, making them dial phone numbers or open websites. In the wrong hands, the technology could be used to unlock doors, wire money or buy stuff online — simply with music playing over the radio.

Surveillance, privacy, and security: Europe’s confused response to Snowden | European Council on Foreign Relations
Surveillance, privacy, and security: Europe’s confused response to Snowden
By Anthony Dworkin
20th January, 2015

The reaction to the recent Paris attacks has shown that digital communications are at the centre of debates about security and human rights. There have been calls to give European governments greater surveillance powers against terrorism, but any policy decisions must also address unresolved questions about the legitimacy and democratic oversight of large-scale data collection. The EU’s lack of clarity and consensus on the subject of surveillance has been displayed in its reaction to Edward Snowden’s revelations about data-gathering by the US and other states, this new ECFR policy memo argues.

Surveillance, privacy and security: Europe’s confused response to Snowden by ECFR Senior Policy Fellow Anthony Dworkin, explores how European countries and groups reacted to public disclosures about mass surveillance since 2013. Despite the attention that Snowden’s revelations received, the memo argues that Europe has failed to engage with the most important issues that they raised. As a result, European citizens are no closer to a reformed and legitimate framework to balance security protection with human rights and democratic oversight.

In response to Snowden, EU institutions and member states have focused on commercial regulation, spying against public officials, and keeping data within Europe. But these measures would do little to curtail US surveillance, and do not take account of mass surveillance carried out by European security services. Instead what is needed is a new framework for surveillance that addresses the global nature of digital communications and the lack of adequate rules and oversight governing tracking of domestic and foreign citizens.

“The issues surrounding digital communications are vitally important for Europe’s security, its economic future, its values, and the rights of its citizens,” according to Anthony Dworkin. “At a time when Europe is again focused on the threat of terrorism, we cannot afford to neglect the steps that are needed to put surveillance by our own governments and our allies onto a legitimate and democratic basis".
