Eyes in the Sky: The Rise of Gorgon Stare and How It Will Watch Us All is the title of a new book by Arthur Holland Michel, the Founder and Co-Director of the Center for the Study of the Drone at Bard College. The main character, if you can call it that, is Gorgon Stare, an Orwellian-scale, aerial surveillance system built by the Pentagon that can track 1,000 moving targets simultaneously.
Gorgon Stare is powered by a technology called WAMI (Wide Area Motion Imagery), and information contained in the book is based on interviews of sources in the Pentagon and the companies that built Gorgon Stare.
The book will be released on June 18, 2019. All who register for and attend Big Data & AI Conference will receive a free copy. So if you’ve not yet registered, visit the conference website for links to registration and detailed information about the Big Data and artificial intelligence conference.
