What is the latest thinking on Internet addiction?

Since the rise in popularity of the Internet, professionals have been debating whether pathologic use should be classed as an addictive disorder. Recently it has been discovered that Internet addiction is associated with certain brain lesions and dysfunctions. It also aversely affects the part of the brain associated with executive functioning, most notably working memory. Those most likely to be effected by pathological Internet use are people in their teens and early twenties.(Hsu,Chang, Tseng, Chiu, 2014).

The database I used for this information was “ClinicalKey”.

Hsu, W, Lin, S, Chang, S, Tseng, Y and Chiu, N, 2014‘ Examining the diagnostic criteria for Internet addiction: Expert validation’. Journal of the Formosan Medical Association, N.P, Australia Clinical Key, Viewed 19 August 2014.

What are IT engineers thinking about surveillance cameras?

Currently IT engineers are looking to develop surveillance cameras further, after recognizing the importance they will play in the protection of assets (Wang, 2013). Areas they are looking to improve are thermal imaging and facial recognition. They believe these advances can act as a deterrent for crimes. An interesting aspect to explore in an essay would be whether the government using these sorts of technologies would encroach on our civil liberties.

The database I used for this information was “Science Direct”

Wang, X, Intelligent multi-camera video surveillance: A review, Pattern Recognition Letters, Volume 34, Issue 1, 1 January 2013, Pages 3-19,
