Machinehood (Classifying people)

Brief description

Welga has optical implants that allow her to see visually coded maps and annotated visuals that integrate the visual feed from her microdrones, from news feeds, feeds from her friends or families and from other sources. When she enters combat or a shield mission where fighting is likely, different bots, protesters and others are shown as colour coded dots.

Pull Quotes

Other than a small crowd at registration, the convention center was mostly empty. Tracking showed the bulk of the attendees in the main hall, listening to the next speaker. The map in Welga’s visual showed white dots for all the bots along their path. Some had already turned red, meaning that Platinum’s intel had discovered weapons on them. Many of those belonged to private citizens and would have no connection to protest groups. Humans appeared in green or gray—civilians and staff, no exfactors or registered protesters to deal with. Their primary concern now were the service bots, which could be hacked or modified to attack. (p. 28).
