DARPA wants god-mode attribution platform to pin and predict crime


"It should also sport algorithms to predict criminal campaign behaviour."

To do this properly, they need to look at everything that is connected - including cameras, etc, and incorporate face and voice recognition, number plate recognition, everything. They can then call the resulting system "the machine" and whoever is ultimately responsible for developing it should definitely ensure that even though it is designed to detect acts of terror, it should see everything: Violent crimes involving ordinary people. People like you. Crimes the government would consider irrelevant, and on which they won't act, so the developer should. He'll need a partner - someone with the skills to intervene.

They'll be hunted by the authorities, so will have to work in secret. You'll never find them, but victim or perpetrator, if your number's up... they'll find you.

Or something.
