Surveillance as a Service

By Yung Au
Cover of Surveillance as a Service

Yung Au’s new report Surveillance as a Service: The European AI-Assisted Mass Surveillance Marketplace examines the European marketplace that produces and exports AI-assisted surveillance systems to governments around the world. In particular, it looks at what we call “ Surveillance as a Service” (SaaS): services and software that are provided for surveillance, and which consist of complex systems that are offered with user-friendly interfaces as well as continual maintenance, updates, and troubleshooting support (rather than a one-off purchase).
