What is Uberveillance? IEEE Technology News

Uberveillance, a newly emerging term in the name of national security, refers to surveillance that applies across all space and all time and supports some organisation that is omniscient, at least relative to some person or object. Uberveillance insists on embedding the surveillance mechanism within the person or object to be monitored and sends the report to the monitoring organisation periodically or continuously. With this will our society become more safe to live in or will it be heading towards self-destruction through the denial of the very freedoms of individuals?
