Next Episode of Dark Net is
Advancements in technology have made it possible for us to connect in the most astonishing ways. A documentary series that explores the furthest reaches of the internet and the people who frequent it, Dark Net provides a revealing and cautionary look inside a vast cyber netherworld rarely witnessed by most of us. Provocative, thought-provoking and frequently profound, each episode illuminates an exciting, ever-expanding frontier where people can do anything and see anything, whether they should or not.
Our face is our most distinguishable feature. But to machines, our face is data and it's being transformed into a faceprint in somebody else's database. In this episode, meet a man whose life was ruined after facial recognition technology tied him to a crime he didn't commit; a father who's wired his home with face recognition technology to keep his autistic daughter safe; plus, exclusive access to the FBI Biometric Technology Center, where over half of American's biometrics have been uploaded into a database.
The digital era offers us new technologies to protect ourselves, but are these devices defending our homes or making them more vulnerable? In this episode meet a woman whose home is invaded by a Ratter, a digital stalker who gains entry through her laptop; enter a neighborhood where residents are battling over proposed camera surveillance to monitor everyone's coming and goings; and a sex offender who received the ultimate punishment for invading his victims' privacy - life under constant surveillance.
Communities are the bedrock of society - physical spaces where residents share a collective purpose and common goals. But the internet has given rise to a new kind of community where lies and hate can flourish. In this episode meet a would-be utopia in Spain where civic life is managed on Twitter; a teacher who becomes the target of a digital lynch mob; and the father of a school shooting victim who must prove to the internet that his son existed.
Humans are social beings - but what happens when the emotional bonds that bind us together are threatened by forces we cannot see or touch, or worse, replaced entirely by the network? In this episode, meet a woman who has programmed her dead friend into a chat bot so he can live on forever; a Japanese family who has adopted a childlike AI robot as a member of their tribe; and a desperate mom turning to spyware to track her teenager's every move. Season finale.
