It is easily possible, using any or all or today's computing power i.e. the cloud, Cognitive Computing like IBMWatson, Meaning Based Computing like HPAutonomy, Biometrics, Analytics, Voice Stress Analysis, Emotion Analysis, Facial Expression Analysis, etc to build cognitive apps that listen, understand and actually help. Experts have said it could be done, and done since 2004.
Now, today, it's time to start using technology to turn back the tide of the Global Rape Culture.
An app that can spot the atmosphere changing before you do, an app that is hyper aware on your behalf.
'intelligent' Glow sticks that change color to indicate violence near at hand, or an app that tunes your mobile towards the violence then starts shooting pics or vid of the scene and analysing it. It should help this time. It will help next time. A simple app that just listens and works out how and where the worst is happening, in real time? An IBMWatson core based on World knowledge of sexual behaviour, including all research on gender and ALL laws relating to gender, including religious laws? It's up to all of you
So, One Billion Rising and V-Day - POWER UP!
"Our stories have been buried, denied, erased, altered, and minimized by patriarchal systems that allow impunity to reign. Justice begins when we speak, release, and acknowledge the truth in solidarity and community. ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is an invitation to break free from confinement, obligation, shame, guilt, grief, pain, humiliation, rage, and bondage.
The campaign is a recognition that we cannot end violence against women without looking at the intersection of poverty, racism, war, the plunder of the environment, capitalism, imperialism, and patriarchy. Impunity lives at the heart of these interlocking forces.
It is a call to bring on revolutionary justice."
