Oliver Stone Says Pokémon Go Could Lead to “a Robot Society”

The famous film director believes Google are now mining our data through highly popular apps such as Pokémon Go.

S tone explained that via the internet and apps, there is a new invasion happening in the world that we’re almost totally unaware of:

“It’s not funny. What’s happening is a new level of invasion. The profits are enormous here for places like Google. They’ve invested a huge amount of money in data mining what you are buying, what you like, your behaviour. It’s what some people call surveillance capitalism. You’ll see a new form of, frankly, a robot society. It’s what they call totalitarianism.”

Stone recently directed ‘Snowden’ and travelled to meet Ed Snowden who is living in exile in Russia. He explained that Snowden was fully cooperative but couldn’t reveal everything to him:

“He is still a mystery. We went as far as we could, and he cooperated with us. But there are things that we don’t know, and things that he will hopefully reveal one day. He is a man who is covert and keeps to himself and lives on the computer. I met him under conditions of secrecy. He was going through a painful period, and I found him very resolute and strong. He has never wilted in the face of opposition. He has only gotten stronger.”
