I often find it hard to covey why it is I go ballistic (maybe I shouldn’t
use the word ballistic….) over all of the data gathering and info sharing being
done by the government. (Oops! Ballistic and government in the same
sentence, “The Mind Machine” will surely find that interesting.)
This article dated Sept 26, 2010 tells us about The Mind Machine. Essentially it plows through huge volumes of
data such as phone calls, emails and social networks. The computer system, we are told, can
actually detect “resentment” and “obsessiveness” towards the government by
various means such as analyzing a person’s “voice biometrics” and the content
of their messages.
Then, the Magical Mind Machine will dispatch law enforcement to spy on you.
“. . .once the individual has been identified,
the information can be passed along to authorities so surveillance can begin”
There are other applications for the Mind Machine as well.
