"Major country which is done a pretty good job of combating the corona virus is South Korea it seemed at first that the virus was spreading rapidly but a massive program to trace and isolate anyone who's been in contact with an infected person seems to have worked the death toll in this country of fifty two million people stands at two hundred and sixty one in the U. K. nearly thirty four thousand people have died out of a population of sixty seven million Justin fend off is a professor of cell biology at times university in the south Korean city of Busan he told me more basically what they've done is they have taken it information methods that are normally used by law enforcement say to catch tax evaders or to track criminals and they re purposed those for a public health use so the three types of information are a number one electronic transaction logs so whenever you use your credit card or get on a bus usually use cashless means or even a subway or something like this all of those transactions are logged automatically on government servers in this is to catch people are trying to do tax evasion at the second type of information that's collected are the mobile phone location logs and so whenever your phone is moving through a city you it has to connect to different transmission towers they're dispersed throughout the city and so as you're moving through you the connections that your phone makes are handed off from one tower to another and their logs of this because your service provider needs to know how much data you've used what what program you're using whether you should be getting four G. service or three G. service and so that's the second type of information and then the third type information are the surveillance cameras which Korea tends to have a lot of because they're very dense population so you're fine cameras are used in most restaurants coffee shops but also on street corners and things like this to catch a parking violators and so these three tie as of information have been integrated for fairly easy use by law enforcement and so now in the cove in nineteen epidemic they have just repurpose them for use by the public health officials and then not just available to law enforcement public health officials you and I can go to websites and actually see where people who've been recorded as cases of be moving around correct and this is actually one of the real powerful parts about contact tracing a retroactive conjectures in particular so retroactive contact racing is where you have a patient who was just diagnosed today and you want to know where they've been in the last few days and this is very powerful because you can use this information to inform people who around that patient it recently and let them know that Hey you know you might have been put at risk and so maybe you need to go get tested so I'm looking at one of the sites that you link to in an article you wrote at and it is quite extraordinary detail is that its patients one oh nine eight seven I can see where they were on may six seven eight what have you what have you noticed when you've looked at this this kind of data so actually the data that shows up on websites are it should be mentioned is also sent out automatically through a national text message service so if you were over on one of those buses or at the coffee shop that this patient had visited two days ago you would automatically receive an alert and if they look at the surveillance cameras and you know saw that maybe you're sitting very close to the person maybe at the table next to them then you probably even get a phone call telling you Hey you know you're put at risk and you should be tested so there's this very strong connection between how the testing is info instituted and how that information is then used to motivate additional testing has this been successful at all yeah I would say it's been extraordinarily successful I mean I think Korea is probably the only country so far that concert decisively dis defeated a large scale epidemic the one senator on table we have a new test right now through the ether one infections so we'll have to see how that pans out that's the link to select this specially the one gentleman who seem to visit five in a row and has fifty knows disquiet no public debate about the the extent of the surveillance involved so I do believe there's some culture things that come into play here so I mean creams are very reluctant to do things that harm other people they're very reluctant to be responsible for someone else getting sick at the same time Koreans culture is very deeply rooted in Confucian traditions so there's also a a kind of understood hierarchy where did regular people tend to believe what the government is asking them to do and I think the buy in might not be as difficult as in some western countries like the United States for instance we have these gentlemen who were you know standing outside of hospitals with the automatic rifles and things like that professor Justin fend off in Busan South Korea would this approach be acceptable in western countries like the UK and the United States a question I put to a researcher of technology ethics Stephanie Herr I think the question isn't so much is that acceptable in these countries is is it necessary so you're right that South Korea which has a really good track record so far in this pandemic of suppressing the virus using surveillance technology as part of its response that's not the only country though that's done really well there are other countries that have managed to suppress the virus without going heavy on that kind of surveillance we could look at New Zealand and Australia we could look at Ireland's we could look at Germany the Nordic countries with the exception of Sweden which is of course not locked down have a very good track record of suppressing the virus without going heavy on surveillance we could look at this stage of Carolina in India which is got one of the best records of suppressing the virus anywhere in the world they have a completely different pandemic response that we could really learn from and they haven't had to use really intrusive surveillance technology and techniques nevertheless contact tracing digital or otherwise is by its nature and intrusive process who were you with last Tuesday I mean that's what they're basically asking yeah it is the human contact tracing in the traditional form involves people bringing you up having to go through all of your movements and who you've been in touch with and your history for the past for the for the period of infection really and then you have to bring all of those people and so on and so forth so people need to be trained you would want them to really be under the jurisdiction if you will of the public health authorities so that the laws around data protection are done that way can I suggest that everything you're asking is that of a mindset which is perhaps putting privacy much higher than people's health what south Koreans would say is that in that balance they'd be much more concerned about health and privacy so I would actually look at it from a different point of view I'm less interested in the privacy and civil liberties perspective at this point than I am and what works that's why I'm really interested that there so many countries that have been able to suppress the find this virus successfully much better than the US and the UK certainly have to South Korea is a really interesting case study and we want to learn from it but we also must ask ourselves are there any other examples where people have not had to do that the fact is there's plenty so we can look at them as well Stephanie had Zoe Kleinman just give us a quick reminder that of the context here in Europe how far have we go with using one particular type of technology Bluetooth tracing apps we had a trial in the U. K. didn't we last week and you know it is more happened since yeah that's right we haven't really got the on the trial yes we trialed on an island in the south case could be on a flight at fifty five thousand people down late today and there were some issues that I transpired as I suppose you'd expect would be when you launch a new lap and things I couldn't what compelled that android phones things like oversee it requires Bluetooth in order to whack and but we are hearing that and that the government's quite pleased with the trial and that it does intends to persevere with it if you like and Germany is going down a different route going down this decentralized routes but that involves something from apple and Google some system from apple and Google which isn't quite ready yet yeah that's right I mean this whole argument about centralized versus decentralized is is is a matter of privacy radius date do you want your data about where you've been and who you've been in touch with to be giving to another database somewhere else what do you want your faves to be analyzing that themselves and therefore it's not sort of collating anyway for anybody else and but the interesting thing I think about Germany that we haven't done here is that in Germany only what if the person tests positive so if there's an actual definite sign that they've got a corona virus whereas here in the U. K. we're relying on people to self diagnose and self the danger there is of course that you might get a blizzard of alerts that at all necessarily true because of because a lot of the symptoms are quite similar to other things as well yeah that betting here that that reproach will be foster because they'll they'll they'll spread the news more quickly even before test comes back positive as you say big risks in that way I'll a long way to go for any before any of these acts show that they actually work now let's have a look at some of the week's other big tech stories with very thrown says ordered online firms to take down offensive content within an hour sounds quite Saluda doesn't it well the one I would add line applies to all websites as well what ever that size so whether that kind of Google Facebook and all the very small stuff happens and the content has to go so quickly is the kind of thing that the French authorities consider to be related to terrorism or child sexual abuse now failing to acts could result in fines of up to four percent of global revenue which could be pretty considerable for the giants but some is saying that the small offensively wouldn't have the resources to comply this because it's gonna require and very very in depth monitoring of a potentially an awful lot of user generated content that's being updated in real time across the world you have seen the route that common treat this the same even the big firms you know getting it down within an hour is just simply impossible we'll see how that route carries on not but is one of the key key for kind of the fence that's been struggling during the crisis of the very few people using its services but is now telling its drivers to wear face masks is that gonna bring customers back that's going to stop on Monday the eighteenth drivers in the U. S. Canada Mexico India most of Europe Latin America the Middle East and Africa will going to have to wear a mosque but nice to play not in the U. K. and that's because the official guidance here is that its advisory rather than compulsory I speak to you about this recently actually and they said they were considering whether that whether they could adopt the sort of online checking tool that they already have and also a monitor at the same time with it that drivers were wearing the masks well they went to the I would recognize that self he's with covered faces of course and she yes indeed and Borman nation I get forty five for playing that would across the trouble would square in Scrabble but why some fans using that word to describe a new version of the guide while reviewing online Scrabble fan you may well have been playing the official app by games giant E.

"Welcome to in the balance this week coming to you from the city of Kilkenny in Ireland and the home of the kill economics economics and comedy festival I'm Laurie cassman judge we getting together at a pivotal time in European politics the E. U. has just appointed its new leadership for the next five years the commissioners who had apple will be important departments from competition to finance and the environment and across Europe there are growing strains caused by the rise of populism nationalism and of course the looming prospect of brexit so here not in the country that many would say is benefiting greatly from its membership of the European Union how did people feel about Europe in general is the economy and in particular the euro now on a more stable footing and when was Europe produced a few tech giants to rival those in the US and China it's a pretty big questions for the next off and went back to to to them over in the pop we're in clears pub here in cook county a lovely medieval city a couple of hours south of Dublin I'm joined by the Irish economist writer and academic David Mack Williams hi David or have you welcome back yes very glad to be here my second visit to coconut makes also with us is Matina Stevens creek Neff who is the Brussels correspondent of The New York Times Haina Tina also a second time visitor always been eight years since I was last here you're very welcome back and also with us is professor bill black a veteran of kill economics experts on banking economics key much of the European scene from his base at the university of Missouri Kansas in the USA is that it and acting for if you all models to just drop the city part of Kansas city so you can move me a state okay never mind never mind let's get Kerry ease Europe is still just about holding together Matina you up on the ground in Brussels what are you seeing as the main challenges Europe faces is the new commissioners take up their jobs where does one begin is Europe still holding together the long view as yes I think there's still a clear understanding among the soon to be twenty seven E. U. member states that there are benefits in staying in more than going out and the messiness and the chaos of brexit really has reinforced that view but at the same time those twenty seven member states are breaking up in blocks they have different interests and they're arguing over issues of economics north south the usual but also now things that are much more political and universal like migration politics populism Europe has always broken up in blocks and fourth in amongst itself at least now it's doing it peacefully and there's a dividend to it Europe is sticking together despite brexit and everything else but it's going to look messy David Williams brexit huge challenge obviously for the U. K. and Ireland but for the U. K. yeah okay your message is the rest of Europe worried about it yeah I notice I was in Berlin last week and today will be the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall this is the prism through which you have to see everything you had a massive change right to the heart of your friend the court the German unification this accelerated the movement towards the internal market this is self accelerate the movement towards the more true union so you have all sorts of political structures that over the last thirty years have probably don't quite okay given the pressures on them with respect to Briggs is what you really notice is when you come out of the English speaking part of the world they don't really care how do you know the kind of fed up it's like if you go there's a door on the board of many times you could be one of the divorced one off you go right I think people aboard I think the muscle nations of the parliament in London for initially kind of exciting and now it's really tedious between this point is very accurate the extraordinary mess the president's being has emboldened the European project I would say actually open project has got the most significant shopping the armored scout for a decade or maybe two decades from rags because basically brings it is shown that it's hard to leave the club and if a very large country like Britain proved to be a rule taker in terms of how it exits the club I think the Italian served in our northern league that was sort of flirting with the idea well think again Marie le pen is completely to you just turn on a European stance since brexit I think that there are many people in Brussels if you're into the integrationist world view of more Europe will actually be down on one knee thanking the British Conservative Party and the brakes apart recognize with Rogers probably the most impressive recruiter for the European Union that the organization has ever had bill black from across the Atlantic beyond brexit wall what does the United States now think all of the economic prospects of of your office the the trump administration is at a very different view from previous administrations about the whole project anyway yeah so the trump administration doesn't exist there a guy that is the living embodiment of narcissism that believes he is the the government so none of us really know what the organs of the United States are supposedly thinking but here's in terms of the economics in Europe the United States recovered to its pre give great financial crisis GDP in two thousand eleven the E. you did in two thousand sixteen the United States is the and the midst of the longest expansion economics mansion in US history and it looks like it will continue for at least six months much of Europe is got negative interest rates it's in recession are on the verge of recession the US is slowing a bit which will hurt Japan is in the twenty fifth year of weirdness nobody knows that an economic to yes it is yeah we teach it in only to advance students that China nobody can believe the numbers it's one of the great risks out there and the E. U. has a fiscal system that mandates austerity when it's essentially believing the patient so when the next recession occurs and it will occur and will Kerr relatively soon the issue is going to be a great lacking indicator the other major thing that's happening and the United States as an example of this is the rise of authoritarian brexit is a distraction from that key weaknesses at the heart of the use system Matina that's a pretty doubt doubt few de do you share it I do when I die if we take the view the Briggs it will happen that leaves the easier remembering why they were at each other's throats to begin with so with brags that out of the picture the E. U. turns back in words and the fight starts again over issues that are divisive with regards to you know negative interest rates growth potential etcetera there is absolutely no doubt that several European member states are flirting with no growth or negative growth negative interest rates simply means that people are betting that the future is going to look worse than the present we managed to wrap our heads around that that's just one of the most devastating indictments all of the E. U. frankly because the whole point of it coming together was too great more prosperity and to make every generation better off than the one before it and we're just not seeing that right now so there's certainly a lot of uncertainty that being said it is the single most prosperous block of countries in the world and it does have some innovation and it's still so I wouldn't write them off quite yet you're listening to in the balance with me Rory Catherine Jones and Mike yes David what Williams Matina Stevens creek Neff and bill black with implants pop in the city of kokanee another to discuss easy Europe broken along side is here today is Irish comedian and writes a column a Regan a big contributor to kill economics and a regular in the balance contributed to a cold you've been mulling over the position of small countries like Ireland and the benefits or otherwise of being one small part of a big block there are advantages to living in a small country there isn't as much a vast miss for crazy militia to hide in with heavy machine guns and wait for the rapture small countries can be more unified there is a reasonable sense of social cohesion and by that I mean we're very nosy have a strong sense of identity if you're small there's a better chance of being able to say that we punch above our own ways as a small country are certainly we talk a lot about punching above our waste in fact it comes to talking about punching above our ways we punch of overweight we are proud of our national achievements we get a great kick out of the successes of our sports people are golfers are boxers to punch back their waste also being an island nation it makes it easier to defend ourselves from the inevitable zombie apocalypse and we get praise it's like being the youngest child in the class constantly patted on the head for our precocious miss RG great all together for such a small country that's when times are good I have no doubt that if bigger countries really needed something from us and we are in willing to give us the the mood would change swiftly if climate change and twenty fifty Arden was the war's largest supplier of rain and looking out the window you can see that starting already then you can guarantee that eventually we would be liberated in inverted commas as part of some war on terror if we took a stand against the tech giants like Google and Facebook level already to thousands of troops on our Saudi bases you know that we eventually would be as part of the war on privacy cancel so in a way it already has happened when we were punching above our waste in terms of the amount of tax we have you noticed that the E. you didn't waste time and gently saying nice country you have here it would be a shame if somebody were to call it off all of your supply of money something that didn't happen to bigger countries for example like Italy and that's just a fact of life for most of history smaller political entities especially in Europe I've just about existed on the good will of those around them so smaller entities eventually formed bigger countries it's safer it's harder to fight with your neighbor if you both have to go to the same residents committee meetings speaking of neighbors in this brexit the Paco in a way we should be grateful to the British government you see one brexit happened first we were thinking maybe the U. K. is on to something should we think about doing something similar you know they were like our Big Brother who brought us to this party in nineteen seventy three admittedly a Big Brother who took all our stuff for centuries and still won't give us back at top they borrowed but still a Big Brother none the less luckily for the E. U. the UK government made such an absolute hands off axis it gave us a little pause for thought and I think that's one of the most precious things a small country can have time time to look around and see where the lie of the land is how badly are other countries managing what we were thinking of doing and then plus the careful course tiptoeing around some of the fights at this party it's not the best party the word to be asked of all the time but as we watch the U. K. stumble out into the hall knocking over a vase on the way it's getting colder outside.
