Eyes in the sky,Surveillance_cameras
Eyes on the ground,
Eyes watch deserted streets
And where crowds are found.

What makes you safer?
What feels right?
Open to the internet,
Or restricted tight?

Watched through the night,
Watched dawn and noon.
You need protection
But protection from whom?

By Kate Rauner

Colonists in my On Mars series have an artificial intelligence – all their communications and data searches pass through it, and it watches using imagers throughout the colony. They mostly appreciate their AI – would you? More about my books here.
