A professor at the University of Colorodo – Colorado Springs is under fire after he photographed 1700 teachers and students as part of a federal government-backed program to “enhance facial recognition technology,” according to The Denver Post.
Professor Torrence Boult, Endowed Chair of Innovation and Security and Professor of Computer Science at the school, was responsible for the project.
The Orwellian program, called “UnConstrained College Students,” is described as “a dataset of long-range surveillance photos captured at University of Colorado Colorado Springs developed primarily for research and development of ‘face detection and recognition research towards surveillance applications.’ According to the authors of two papers associated with the dataset, over 1,700 students and pedestrians were ‘photographed using a long-range high-resolution surveillance camera without their knowledge.'”
The project, carried out six years ago, is raising privacy concerns.
“While professor Terrance Boult and CU officials defended the project and its efforts to protect student privacy, a University of Denver law professor questioned whether this is an example of technological advancement crossing ethical boundaries,” according to The Denver Post.
Boult defended his work, which was originally commissioned by the U.S. Navy.
“It was solved if you wanted to match two passport photos where the person is facing forward in good light, but not if you wanted to recognize someone 100 meters away.
The study is trying to make facial recognition better, especially at long range or surveillance applications. We wanted to collect a dataset of people acting naturally in public because that’s the way people are trying to use facial recognition.”

LOU DOBBS TO TRUMP: You Must ‘Declassify All Information and Documents Related to Obama-gate, and Do It Now’
Dobbs believes it is now or never for the president.
Fox Business host Lou Dobbs has been one of the few cable hosts who has called out the electoral farce for the scam that it is.
He offered a personal plea to President Donald Trump on the Monday edition of “Lou Dobbs Tonight.” He wants Trump to release documents that will expose major deep state corruption before he leaves office.
“It’s called many things – mail-in voting, it is called software fraud, it is called hardware fraud, it is voter fraud, it is electoral fraud – but if I may, Mr. President, the problem here is that you’re not just fighting fraud any more than you were just fighting the Russia hoax,” Dobbs said in his appeal to the president. “That was an effort, not a hoax, to overthrow your presidency, not a hoax, an outright effort to overthrow the president of the United States that went on from the time you won the office to the time right now.”
“The irregularities in this election are not just fraud, electoral or voter. They are another attempt to overthrow the president of the United States, and it’s being brought to you by the very same people,” he added.
Dobbs then recommended for President Trump to declassify all documents related to the Russia-gate hoax, which he said he would do before the election before he was overruled by random deep state goons.
“I ask that you also declassify all information and documents related to Obama-gate, and do it now. It is time the American people know the truth, the full truth, the whole truth, and we cannot trust the Justice Department, the FBI, or any intelligence agency,” he said.
“And even if we cannot ever restore faith in the Justice Department or the FBI, surely we can preserve the right of the American people to know that it is in within your control, your power, and I urge you to use it,” Dobbs said to conclude his rant.
Big League Politics has reported on how Attorney General Bill Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham have done nothing to provide accountability following the Russia-gate hoax:
U.S. Attorney John Durham is reportedly giving up on the Russia-gate investigation, as he is too scared to delve into the truth now that Biden has been announced as president-elect by the globalists.
Thus far, Durham’s investigation has been a huge bust. His work has only resulted in the prosecution of one individual – former FBI Attorney Kevin Clinesmith – for making or using “any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry.”
Outside of this nobody, there have been no prosecutions that have resulted from Durham’s Russia-gate investigation despite the laundry list of evidence showing wrongdoing…
Sean Davis of The Federalist has reported that the investigation is over. Durham is apparently quitting because of cowardice.
The “trust the plan” nonsense has proven to be fruitless hype. However, President Trump has another chance to achieve true transparency and accountability, and he should take it no matter what the potential consequences may be.
