Just like the $1,000,000,000 he was going to raise to defeat Romney; That's not working so well for President Fundraiser.
Big brother is definitely here.
I work for a “big data” analytics company and the power of today’s computing technology along with the vast amounts of data that is available is astounding. With the right knowledge (which i am sure they have), you could load hundreds of billions of records into a single database, and perform analysis across data from a variety of sources:
- personal financial data
- financial industry data
- census data
- employment data
- voting data
- social media posts
- blog posts
- focus group data
Someone said above - they would be able to target a group of 2000-3000 people where the election could hang in balance. And with all the information they have available, they could use that detailed data to structure a campaign message specifically at that group of people.
