Just read in the paper today that Sweden has a surveilance concept called "National camera concept" where certain places high in crime are surveiled and will now be directly connected to the police so they can surveil in real time.

Three cities high in crime will get this; Stockholm, Gothenburg and Helsingborg.

Hmm, yeah this is a bit weird. On the other hand noone'll protest due to the high crime, people'll just think it's great and that they can feel safer. And of course, we DO have a great deal of violent crimes around but I seriously doubt the police has time for watching the cameras considering our city park has had one for ages and the police and court don't even bring out the footage even when a crime has been committed so why would they help the citizens now, all of a sudden?

No, considering how the police never come when one calls, no matter WHAT it's about, this is hardly to help but for something else.

Big data only useful when combined with AI and with big processing. If you put the two together you have the required ingredients for the "Beast System" of the last book of the NT...

"The collaboration between NASA and USRA builds on a thirty-year history of collaboration between the USRA Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science (RIACS) and the NASA Ames Research Center, which started with a focus on supercomputing and artificial intelligence, and has extended that focus to include the intersection of quantum computing and artificial intelligence."

Patrick Wood has been looking into these issues for some time, even before the delightful Quantum Computer had been thought of!


Part one of three if anyone is interested!
