The US Air Force wants to monitor, track and analyze everything done on the Internet around the globe
“Dr. Mark Maybury, the United States Air Force Chief Scientist, is stepping outside of the typical areas in which an Air Force Chief Scientist operates and into the digital realm.
Maybury seeks to develop something he has dubbed “Social Radar” which would monitor information coming from just about every source imaginable: television, all Internet communications, radio, official reports, and more, in order to look into the hearts and minds of target populations and perhaps even predict future events.
The Department of Defense (DOD) and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) have been working on technology along these lines for some time now, but Maybury’s vision seems even more expansive and hard to believe than anything I’ve previously heard of or read about.
Maybury outlined his vision of a Social Radar in a 2010 paper for the MITRE Corporation, a government-funded entity.”
