Surprise: Raytheon Devises Technology to Monitor SerfsMonday, February 11, 2013
Shocking news from the Washington Times:
The Rapid Information Overlay Technology (RIOT) software uses location data embedded in photographs and other Internet postings to track users’ movements and personal activities, according to Brian Urch, Raytheon’s principal investigator.
This column from Computerworld explains how one of the state’s top surveillance arms uses the RIOT software to track social media and predict behavior. The Telegraph calls it “snooping technology” and “stalking software.” The Guardian posts a video demonstration showing how the software can track an individual.
