EU funding 'Orwellian' artificial intelligence plan to monitor public for 'abnormal behaviour'

"EU funding 'Orwellian' artificial intelligence plan to monitor public for "abnormal behaviour" The European Union is spending millions of pounds developing "Orwellian" technologies designed to scour the internet and CCTV images for "abnormal behaviour"."

SNIPPET: "A five-year research programme, called Project Indect, aims to develop computer programmes which act as "agents" to monitor and process information from web sites, discussion forums, file servers, peer-to-peer networks and even individual computers. Its main objectives include the "automatic detection of threats and abnormal behaviour or violence"."

SNIPPET: "Project Indect, which received nearly £10 million in funding from the European Union, involves the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) and computer scientists at York University, in addition to colleagues in nine other European countries."

SNIPPET: "The European Commission is calling for a "common culture" of law enforcement to be developed across the EU and for a third of police officers – more than 50,000 in the UK alone – to be given training in European affairs within the next five years.

According to the Open Europe think tank, the increased emphasis on co-operation and sharing intelligence means that European police forces are likely to gain access to sensitive information held by UK police, including the British DNA database."

SNIPPET: "A separate EU-funded research project, called Adabts – the Automatic Detection of Abnormal Behaviour and Threats in crowded Spaces – has received nearly £3 million. Its is based in Sweden but partners include the UK Home Office and BAE Systems.

It is seeking to develop models of "suspicious behaviour" so these can be automatically detected using CCTV and other surveillance methods. The system would analyse the pitch of people's voices, the way their bodies move and track individuals within crowds."

We should immediately deploy this technology in Washington D.C!

Well, sort of stopping it before it’s installed, the populace can resort to street theatre, a revival of flash-mobs, and feigning random individual “abnormal” behaviours on an hourly basis to overload the system.

In the meantime European nations can not even reduce the ever increasing rape of infidels in the streets.

Europeans allow them keep cranking it up. They have no idea what is behind it -socialism. They don’t have free speech so they are not alowed original observation and thought to share with one another. In Europe there is socialist and communist. Sad.

The government is supposed to protect us from the ragheads.

So what is to stop this program from scanning, probing and monitoring websites, networks or computers that are not in the EU?

Abnormal behavior includes working for a living and causing global warming.

Seems to me the muzzies are used as pawns more often than not for political purposes.

I plan to act suspicious enough to make the computers curious, but not so much as to appear “abnormal” ...

For example, I will drive an SUV, but have all Compact florescent lighting in my bunker compound ...

I will only flush after a “big event”, but I will leave a faucet dripping for the cats to drink out of ...

I will be all for any government program designed to help people, but only if it can be proven to work better than private sector alternatives.

This sort of complexity confuses the computers and the social engineers ...

"More often than not"?

Hmph. They seem pretty universally antagonistic and violent against just about every possible aspect of Western civilization to me. What's a "more often" example of "pawn"?

We all know how our government, under Clinton, enlisted Al Qaeda to fight against CHRISTIANS in the Balkans. And of course the origins of Al Qaeda during Operation Cyclone. It just seems to me every time there’s pressure on the government, some kind of flimsy terror warning comes out (today’s terror color is magenta BTW). Hell, the FBI had an informant inside the blind sheik’s inner circle and knew about the plan to bomb the WTC a year before it happened.

Keystroke Loggers Installed In New Laptop Computers click

interesting article from this morning

"I called the police, as having a key-logger unknown to me in my laptop is a serious offense. They told me to call the Department of Homeland Security. At this point, I am in disbelief. Why would the DHS have a keylogger in my laptop? It was surreal. So I called them. They told me to submit a "Freedom of Information Act" request"

I understand now. I thought you were dismissing the reality of the Islamic threat - but you’re saying that reality is moved in and out of public attention, if not stimulated directly, in order to provide cover for other government scandals.

LOL, sometimes I’m slow, but I eventually get it. Although I’ve become so cynical that I believe absolutely everything is used as a cover for everything else, in one way or another. But yeah, Islamic terrorism is a big, fat, easy attention target always ready and available.

As some of the comments from the article mention, this is probably a hoax. And if it's not, it wouldn't be done so crudely as through a "white cable" attached to the keyboard, but through the motherboard itself and so be very hard to detect. Also, the article doesn't mention any brand name, so it can't be checked up on.

Right, it’s basically a “Wag The Dog” thing.

but who defines what constitutes “suspicious behaviour”? Or even more worryingly, “abnormal behaviour”?
