Professor has camera surgically implanted

From Slashdot: NYU Professor Wafaa Bilal is having a camera surgically implanted in the back of his head. Described as an art project, the camera will take a photograph every minute for one year, and a curated selection of shots will be exhibited in a new museum opening in Qatar. Bilal will also release a live stream of images from the camera.

Both NYU administrators and students have expressed concerns about privacy issues with respect to the project.

One possible outcome: “There won’t be any cheating in professor Wafaa Bilal’s class anymore. “
