Video Surveillance In WestWorld
I have been thinking of the criticism about the techs and other areas not having their video reviewed. I think A.Ron pointed out that the garage would probably be as monitored as a Las Vegas Casino.
I agree that's probably the case, but how many people do they have monitoring the tape? In a casino you have a room full of people watching banks of monitors, it is worth the investment of having people whose primary role is to keep an eye out for cheating or for dealers pocketing money because there is a serious risk of lost assets on the floor of a casino.
I think in most situations surveillance is kept as a retro-solution, you look at the tape if you find a problem.
I'm reminded of an accounting I saw on one of those true-story shows from the 90's (This is really Halloween appropriate):
There was a family who noticed their security camera was broken, it had fallen from its bracket and was damaged. (Or so they thought). They were going to just throw it away, because they all agreed they never really needed it, but one family member decided to fast-forward through the tape to see if he could figure out what broke the camera. It had a tape that recorded through night-hours on a schedule and taped over itself weekly. When he watched it **there was a guy who would crouch in the bushes every night and watch the family through a window** Every night, he showed up on the tape. The last date that was recorded had the guy look up, notice the camera, and knock it down. It was extra creepy because it was only half-way through recording over the previous week's feed, so you got to watch a couple more nights of him creeping.
I'm just saying, if an issue comes up, they may review the garage footage or take a closer look at what the man in black is doing, but they ignored him until they noticed he killed a threshold number of hosts. They probably aren't really looking at what the guests are doing. If someone was watching the guests regularly they would probably be fired for being a voyeur.
Anyways, thought it was a spooky, fun point for this scary season

Disclaimer, I've worked security for a Casino and did sit at the video bank for a night
be fixed, security was way too lax. Surely that is the place where the
robots are most likely to behave unpredictably, yet not a security guard
I am thinking the exam rooms are way too big. Every exam I have had, the room is about 1/3 the size of a Westworld room.
Neither Ford nor Bernard flinch at all when Abernathy reaches out and grabs Ford. That was surprising to me based on my assertion that a Host would have only those subsystems energized/unlocked necessary for the exam. That is, note the limpness of their extremities in their seated posture.
How should I understand that line? Simple hyperbole, a suggestion that they can closely monitor only hosts who are interacting with guests, or an implication that they could conceivably monitor, at least remotely, all host's actions at any time?
