In the first news story, "Intelligent Surveillance Empowers Security Analysts," governments and corporations worldwide are spending billions of dollars researching, developing, and deploying intelligent video surveillance systems, data mining software, biometrics systems, and Internet geolocation technology. Growing use of these technologies has increased public scrutiny of, and resistance to, them. In the second news story, "These Computers Know How You Feel," with the debate still going as to whether AI is actual intelligence or just clever programming, the question remains: Can a computer have an EQ (emotional quotient)? The first line researchers have taken in investigating computers' capacity for feeling involves affective, or emotional, computing, which refers to computers sensing, reasoning about, and responding to human emotion.
