"Pre-crime" detector detects "hostile thoughts" before they become actions


uk.news.yahoo.com

This is a little concerning. A year ago, the US Department of Homeland Security reckoned that it had worked out how to read people's minds, and detect "hostile thoughts". They've just announced that they think it actually works.

Minority Report Is Here. This from what I can make of it is a glorified polygraph. What they intend to use it for should it actually works is anyone's guess. Its my understanding that the polygraph test is no longer admissible as evidence in some cases. Precognitive crime detection seems to be a thing of the not too distant future. If they can guaranty it actually works which again should be interesting.

Good post.. I just hope they done abuse this.. People are paranoid enough, does this technology really work, and what are the risks to the person getting scanned? I hope and pray that the authorities are responsible with the technology.

What if you are listening to Pantera before being scanned? Blame Dime-Bag? He is dead, sadly.

This is pretty neat, but I doubt it is advanced enough to be used on anything but test subjects or maybe random interrogations. Better than water boarding I'd suppose.

and btw Minority Report is an amazingly underrated film. It shows big brother on a scale that 1984 never could.

haha! I remember watching that movie and thinking that it would be possible for that kind of technology to exist. I laugh at the irony of how science fiction seems to always become a reality in some sense, but I don't laugh at the implications this could mean. Lord knows that as a human, I have my fair share of hostile thoughts and would hate to be prosecuted on a thought that I would never actually carry out.

lol thats a kick ass song/album...





The team behind FAST want it to be easily transportable, so that FAST trucks can appear at any sports or music event as required. They want them to become as regular a sight at such events as mobile toilets and catering trucks. I'm no privacy activist, but I fear the day.



thats not something I would really rather not see on a daily basis.


While I admit that it can be used for good( just like the rfid chip), there are better ways to handle problems that aren't as invasive.

Sensors detect pulse rate, breathing, skin temperature, or fleeting facial expressions


I dunno...polygraphs work by comparing "safe" questions to those that are likely to be unsafe (and illicit a response).

Seems to me if someone dosed themselves on xanax or ativan they would be able to remain pretty darn calm and since there is no "baseline" to compare their reactions they would probably pass. Don't the Israelies do this manually now? Trained agents that look for odd behavior on passengers boarding planes?

It doesn't really detect hostile thoughts, they have a search criteria for things that they deem associated or correlated with (hostility)...It's just profiling...
It's the difference between giving you a blood test from across the room vs. saying "Hey, Vern, I bet that jumpy guy been taking coc aine"...

who provides the standards of judgment?
as you haves said, what if you are distressed by matters completely different than "mal-intent"

Approving this technology is like approving the way people in the middle ages measured the bumps on the head to make out the criminals form the law abiding citizens.
The ones in control can abuse this system to weed out the suspicious from the sheeple based on pure mechanical ideals.

Phillip K. Dick saw the future and it wasn't very pleasant for us at least.
hopefully by the time they try to implement this the world will have changed.
