The author of the essay “Panopticism”, Michel Foucault gives his opinion on power and discipline in Panopticism. He describes Jeremy Bentham’s “Panopticon”, a tower in the centre of a room which has vision to every cell, generalized for prisoners. In simple words, it functioned in maintaining discipline throughout the jail.
The panopticon, as designed by Jeremy Bentham in the 18th century, was an idea that was supposed to enable a prison guard to hold all his inmates in a jail under surveillance simultaneously, while disabling the inmates from seeing one another.
Panopticon is a prison design that includes a tower, having an internal surveillance where people who work for the government are able to see the prisoners. At this point, visibility is a trap. This type of surveillance forms the backbone of 1984, where you are not able to see the telescreens, but the hidden telescreens are constantly omnipresent.
The panopticon is a type of institutional building and a system of control designed by the English philosopher and social theorist Jeremy Bentham in the 18th century. The concept of the design is to allow all prisoners of an institution to be observed by a single security guard, without the inmates being able to tell whether they are being watched.Learn More

The Panopticon was Jeremy Bentham's plan for a prison in which large numbers of convicts could be kept under surveillance by very few guards. The idea was to build the prison cells in a circle around the guard post. All the prisoners would be silhouetted against light coming into the cells from windows on the outside of the circle.Learn More
A Panopticon Singularity is the logical outcome if the burgeoning technologies of the singularity are funneled into automating law enforcement. Previous police states were limited by manpower, but the panopticon singularity substitutes technology, and ultimately replaces human conscience with a brilliant but merciless prosthesis.Learn More
