5:27 pm
i was up to his eyes from my promise. to where. i'm harlowe home i'm a software developer and digital security trainer and i'm the lead architect of a library called informant camp which sits in the center of the camera free app. i
5:28 pm
mean i think you wrote this code to pull in anything that might exist pretty much pretty much because whatever you. why not because why not a couple of years ago i was in a class that nathan taught and for a project i had decided that i wanted to sink a video and images with of their data points that were exposed in order to you know get a kind of who what when where why and possibly even how of a particular event that you see visually. around the world. there are a number of satellites. that are constantly orbiting our globe and they usually. beam down position info to devices such as our cell phones that have
5:29 pm
a pretty good accuracy and also have the unintended effect of giving us a timestamp as well which we use rather than your phone's clock and order to tell what time it was if you're standing anywhere on earth and can receive g.p.s. signal your device is then able to triangulate where you are in relation to it and several of the sources that you also use to triangulate your position can also be used by camera feed to further cooperate where you are such as your cell phone tower or even nearby why fight networks. right now there's more photos more videos than ever being put in from social media into court they called open source right in the legal process where they go out and source things off the open web and then use that as evidence for instance but the process of verifying who and what and when it's really this manual labor we have to go back and kind of dig through all of this to kind of piece it together and what we're trying to do is
5:30 pm
just. create that from the start so creating a kind of d.n.a. inside the visual media itself such that it's there from the beginning. or. what's interesting about open source development especially with android software is that just about everything is accessible using an a.p.i. an a.p.i. being an application programming interface is kind of like a door that allows you to access certain. certain assets of the phone and this case especially with camera v. it was the interface to the hardware screens. right since. we used to build a fix things ourselves and understand how they work and now they're you know almost hermetically sealed behind you know many tiny screws all of which we have to find a special screwdriver for. if you open it up you actually see that it really is
5:31 pm
simply a computer inside of this case. this is the camera it's quite powerful and it's got a jar interface on the back for the motherboard this is where all the data flows and inside here we have the lens and the sensors that focus and capture the light and turn it into you have it right and this is where it then flows into the motherboard through the bus which is then captured into the general purpose c.p.u. that ours the android operating system. so usually when someone talks about taking a picture what they mean is using a photographic sensor to capture a visible light emanating from a subject a person or a place when we talk about taking a picture we're actually talking about capturing a much broader spectrum of energy like infrared spectrum and radio waves and speed
5:32 pm
and gravity and other atmosphere is energy. coming in that you don't perceive with your eyes fortunately for us smartphone devices have additional sensor components that can gather distance. through talk about taking a picture it's about gathering the full spectrum of the visible and the invisible and working through it for. her. this is the tricky part to this but maybe i can get a job here for some self yari have a job. different kind of job. she's android. but now i've been thinking about committing myself to i phone again because the go go go cross compiling on the i phone no i would never use and i found out that.
5:33 pm
they're pretty nice. but i am not really a fan of. the particular barrier to entry that they place for people who want to get started develop and yeah i think on a theoretical level i you know kind of push back against apple because of that i also think about it is star trek or star wars a little bit you enjoyed a star wars i thought a search and yet when you think the opposite well i guess if i were to make any. any argument although i definitely do get what you mean i think android lends itself more to federation. than than the iowa system does and also quite frankly what it boils down to is i like star trek better.
