Incendiary Words


Smart Planet comes through again, this time with a post titled Top Keywords that Homeland security use to spy on you.





Obviously, neural nets are being use here to the extreme. The problem with using this tech lies in the difficulty of extracting the real meaning of these words when used in context, a goodly portion of which we all have said in conversations with others from time to time, either face to face or in blogs, emails, phone calls or social sites, the primary places where surveillance of this type takes place. Without question, we are being surveilled against but, as often stated in BRT, this type of 24/7 surveillance should be universal and applicable to all, not just reserved for agencies like Homeland Security, an agency who's unfortunate title uncomfortably reminds one of repressive regimes like Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany and North Korea.
