Biometrics( Visual )

Technology is taking the field of biometrics to new levels of accuracy and efficiency. But is the price of such security, achieved by turning over unique bodily information to governments and private companies, too high? And is biometric data really as foolproof as its proponents say? This program travels the globe to showcase examples of high-tech biometrics in action, including electronic recognition of iris patterns, fingerprints, faces, hand vein patterns, handwriting, and gait. In addition, Alex Turk, chairman of France's national commission on data protection and civil liberties, voices his concern over people's passive acceptance of biometric technologies, and a hacker demonstrates just how easy it is to fake out a fingerprint scanner. Contains brief nudity depicting humans in motion as it relates to behavioral biometrics

Some live in political sensitive areas like Eri and Maki in Okinawa with US military base, and Sanae near the disputed northern island territories, while others like Yoshio and Mitsukatsu live having two mother cultures in the fairly homogeneous country. Some still live with their parents, while others live independent from their family, by or not by choice. (From Japan, in Japanese, English subtitles) "--Website

The dream life of rats = La vie revee des rats( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Laboratory rats have been used since early 20th century to understand the workings of the brain, notably learning and memory. The latest technology now enables scientists to read a rat's brain (its dreams and states of consciousness) and even to manipulate it, paving the way, with advances in neurobotics, notably in brain-chip and brain-machine interface technologies, to the cyborg, the bionic man. This documentary goes through the history of cognitive and behavioural research, and shows how rats have enabled us to discover new ways first to understand, then to control our brains which, over time, could radically change the way we think of ourselves."--SBS website
