3. Social Media Intelligence: what does a Facebook like say about you?
4. Predictive Policing: a feedback loop that reinforces racial bias
5. Lie Detectors: security on scientifically dubious grounds
6. Border Externalisation: outsourcing border controls and surveillance
7. Biometrics Processing: a feast of databases
8. Facial Recognition: making surveillance frictionless
9. Artificial Intelligence: your fate in the hands of the system
10. Private Companies: when the border is a good business
