1:27 pm
i was up to his eyes from my promise. to where. i am harlow home i'm a software developer and digital security trainer and i'm the lead architect of a library called informant camp which sits in the center of the camera free app. i mean i think you wrote this code to pull in anything that might exist pretty much
1:28 pm
pretty much because whatever you can why not why not a couple of years ago i was in a class that nathan taught and for a project i had decided that i wanted to sing video and images with of their data points that were exposed in order to you know get a kind of who what when where why and possibly even how of a particular event that you see visually. around the world. there are a number of satellites. that are constantly orbiting our globe and they usually. beam down position info to devices such as our cell phones that have a pretty good accuracy and also have the unintended effect of giving us
1:29 pm
a timestamp as well which we use rather than your phone's clock and order to tell what time it was if you're standing anywhere on earth and can receive g.p.s. signal your device is then able to triangulate where you are in relation to it and several of the sources that you also use to triangulate your position can also be used by camera to further cooperate where you are such as your cell phone tower or even nearby why fight networks. right now there's more photos more videos than ever being put in from social media into court they called open source right in the legal process where they go out and source things off the open web and then use that as evidence for instance but the process of verifying who and what and when it's really this manual labor we have to go back and kind of dig through all of this to kind of piece it together and what we're trying to do is just create that from the start so creating a kind of d.n.a.
1:30 pm
inside the visual media itself such that it's there from the beginning. what's interesting about open source development especially with android software is that just about everything is accessible using an a.p.i. an a.p.i. being an application programming interface is kind of like a door that allows you to access certain. certain facets of the phone and this case especially with camera v. it was an interface to the hardware screens. right the springs. we used to build fix things ourselves and understand how they work and now they're you know almost hermetically sealed behind you know many tiny screws one of which we have to find a special screwdriver for. if you open it up you actually see that it really is simply a computer inside of this case. this is the camera it's quite powerful and it's got
1:31 pm
a jar interface on the back for the motherboard this is where all the data flows and inside here we have the lens and the sensors that focus and capture the light and turn it into you have it right and this is where it then flows into the motherboard through the bus which is then captured into the general purpose c.p.u. that hours the android operating system. so usually when someone talks about taking a picture what they mean is using a photographic sensor to capture a visible light emanating from a subject a person or a place when we talk about taking a picture we're actually talking about capturing a much broader spectrum of energy like infrared spectrum and radio waves and speed and gravity and other atmosphere of energy coming in that you don't perceive with
1:32 pm
your eyes fortunately for us smartphone devices have additional sensor components that can gather things. through talk about taking a picture it's about gathering the full spectrum of the visible and the invisible interim working through the quarter. this is the tricky part to this but maybe i can get a job here fix himself yari have a job thanks that's a tough and different kind of job he. sees android. but now i've been thinking about committing myself to i phone again because the go go go cross compiling on the i phone no i would never use an i phone that sat. there pretty nice. but i am not really
1:33 pm
a fan of. the particular barrier to entry that they place for people who want to get started developing yeah i think on a theoretical level i you know kind of push back against apple because of that i also think about it a star trek or star wars a little bit and there it is star wars i thought it starts. yeah when you think the opposite well i guess if i were to make any. any argument although i definitely do get what you mean i think android lends itself more to federation. than the iowa system does and also quite frankly what it boils down to is i like star trek.
1:34 pm
so you guys have the the force ready and the camera view up is already sold oh it should be on your home screen so you know for a corner. selects. once promoters activate it it's all the work it sort of works like a little black box recorder for some some other they write like do you guys know what method it is so it's information about the video and the generic to finish unformatted there is datable data here in the united states the word metal data has been all over the news. because of the secret program of the and it's a collecting method data for phone calls. ensure that the data can be used to corroborate what the new image shows or want to witness. tell tells about
1:35 pm
what's happening in the image and it can be used to reveal additional contextual information about poulticing so it works in the background and now you can open your favorite camera app or just the camera that's the default camera on the phone and you can start shooting just the usual way you do this you don't have to do anything different at this point it just it works in the background to records your information and automatically imports all this into a camera view we can go outside and come back. to we are going to do this exercise we're going to use the camera we're going to use. and we're going to document with. you we have a number of people we have 4 members that she will. we have witness on the front i can't miss them we have a pretty unique style. you feel good let's look at the cinema this is the funniest
1:36 pm
movie and that's about i said you know more than one act my good our film about 2 hours on someone you know i mean they are the ones getting the beginning to think it's going to be for something which should not be on the kerry campaign councell guitars you know one thing that's wrong with loads of money to play with to put them into the lead up to some quite tough mission that there's no one no no no. no . they don't part of it either but that one. i just asked like if there were any. likes particular experiences that they've had or situations where the where the functionalities of the immediately thought could be used but it came to office that was sponsored to move it to call for would you if you might say i should. say what's going on here john you know or i think there are some pretty self funded up until i have no idea if it was if a woman would tell me on this you know police you know they just say ok but ask you
1:37 pm
guys i never met him but i have watched. but that's like it's often little that's i think. really. the name of your project kind of infamous now a bigger brother because the vision was the sum total of power of our individual smartphone cameras connected was greater than the big brothers here through surveillance technology through cameras on the street closed circuit surveillance cameras so in the past you know we live when we think about the notion of surveillance we think about the east you know really tall poles with big ominous camera ciena staring down at us from every street corner and i think it's really exciting when we invert that and we think about you know soon valence a circus from the french top down and sue inverts that bottom up right so the suv
1:38 pm
aliens is really how we watch back and you know ultimately we have more cameras than they do because we're the people. in the sunset park and by the group coming in i'll buy off on. the world for the operator so but it is one that i meant you're going to put it sounded domain with about a couple have fights on a complex item oh i don't know if i valued as i can this i mean to buy my zinc. so stressed only going to put this out you've got to brazil you know watch out and we got a lot of people out there how do you feel. i mean this is a humbling you know i just feel like part of a group to do that you know it's going to raise him and like film the police.
1:39 pm
is a crazy you know for you. know. we got we got 48 gig. we loaded. 73 so what would be where i would definitely be at because look how ready so that right there is telling me there's a lot of complaints given by civilians about police misconduct in that precinct and some might say so my the things i. say again i've made to the my pm me aren't here politically so we used the c.c. . we used a y p d map and we also used the n. saw that we gather from people in the street and when he thought i was. i did that i saw. daisy sell a lot of bra. i'm a how the show i'm a shill i'm a shop bell lead and this is something the spreading globally you know people naturally instinctively know that pulling out a cell phone camera you're going to record and this is something that you can now
1:40 pm
do social media and let the world see that's you know a shift in who controls what. but if you don't you'll see still might keep you just most of them will go to see my. local hipness some edge of access for which in talk it just gets them a vote so then is. that from a technological police formation need to. get out of some of the not you put out a lot i just. wish the staff isn't the message they mean by whom we might.
1:41 pm
but let.
1:42 pm
the but. it looks pretty good unless you want to salute original. form that really was reinforced when you. see the phone with us yes yes there's a special one take a look at the many data here. but actually let's see previous themselves. yeah so this one house and cell tower. data and that. but what was interesting and i'm not necessarily sure we have it but. mostly it's the wife by network haha and why that's interesting obviously is because. it puts you like in
1:43 pm
a specific place at best person killer time. and also like the white lie level that that you have there. gives a little bit of sense of your like you know proximity and like even kind of directionality how you're facing in in regards to that life i see you know the just the very fact of having a trajectory for a video from start to finish with direction or you know 9 is i mean 1st and foremost from the gentry perspective what you trust but from the storytelling perspective we can really think about how to leverage that right but the point of i think this entire project is that we want to be able to believe what we see and we want to be able to establish trust with the people who are showing us things that we see so it's not just i don't know instagram for activists this is serious
1:44 pm
business. the. up in the sun i see they're going to inject them into the commercial of the muslim from here in the garbage. most companies market that they can always tell me one thing sam or me composed of it on themselves and gone. on. good evening my name is even holding time. as i me executive director of with this there's one group who is amazing they are just smartest they are the most effective and they are to previous so mind warner is to work with. both. i had to go
