The German hacker Simon Weckert likes to cause miles of traffic jams by switching green traffic lights to red. And he hacked Google Maps with the help of a hand truck that was filled with 99 cell phones! With the work that was shown at Ars Electronica last September, the 32-year-old activist warns of data misuse and shows that one shouldn't blindly trust movement maps from artificial intelligence.
