Cyber Crime/protection: understanding through theatre Caroline Pearce, 15 January 2017 Three of us discussed the topic and touched on loads of different elements of the facts, who knows what, what's happening and how we as a theatre community, or people with skills and resources in theatre can help to understand, demystify, discover and address ‘stuff’ happening online. I opened the conversation because I am working with on a project that's starting to explore this and to date we're working with theatre makers in schools with 13 year olds, with various results and successes; after the end of this stage I intend to develop the project and was curious if anyone else is working on anything like this, if other people see this as an interesting project and what people understand from the question. We discussed: Digital natives - different attitudes to sharing Ethical divides between generations Google search logarithms leading to self-affirming results, or actively blocking - and how this dynamic access to information and affects people, and how our understanding of the world affects our ability to detect bogus information Fake news factories What is a crime? Law makers keeping up with technoology and international law; and the shifting sands between law, ethics and morality. Are we entering Cyber War 1? TV show called ‘The Circus’ on Bloomberg Politics - reflections on the 2016 POTUS campaign? Wikileaks - links between Trump & Assange & variously with Clinton Disconnect: online vs IRL - and how that has the ability to exacerbate underlying personal issue (esp mental & emotional health) with often horrendous results Is there a counter to that in which this disconnect is enabling, eg physically disabled people Arts education being increasingly important in a world where arts education is being devalued and reduced International considerations - it's an international problem that can't be solved in isolation …interesting related exisitng art… There was a show at Brooklyn Academy of Music about identity theft by a father of his child - read more re: Tyler Clementi Book “As If” by journalist, Blake Morrison, about his experience covering the Jamie Bulger case 1984… perhaps there's something really effective about just sharing stories like this that predicted versions of the future … creative ideas… misinformation / Big Brother (both references) / experiece / immersion / re: privacy finding compelling true stories eg Rutgers Uni, Livingston Campus suicide make it dark! and scary TB has a CCTV related FOI exhibition concept (not for nicking!) read current New Scientist magazine concept of human time vs machine time - transferring agency (and power) to computers In this new world, what is it sensible to teach?

It's really interesting although I'm not sure it will have quite the same impact that it had when watching it in ‘real time’ throughout the campaign http://www.sho.com/the-circus-inside-the-greatest-political-show-on-earth The article in New Scientist is called ‘To catch a thief, red-handed’ and it's about a computer vision system called P-REACT. It's designed to detect suspicious/unusual behaviour, determining if it's criminal is left the the humans it alerts.
