A new piece of software available in England for CCTVs can identify the race of people passing its lens, and change the camera's behavior accordingly. Based on the race of the person being watched, the camera can choose to track the person or continue to randomly survey the area. The race-identifying software was developed by Benjamin Males, an art student in London whose work aims to show why ubiquitous CCTVs are troubling. [PC World]
