TECH | FUTURE | DARPA wants ‘pre-crime’ technology

In the Tom Cruise film “Minority Report,” specially trained agents
detect and arrest criminals before they commit their crimes.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is seeking algorithms
that will allow it to do something similar, according to Wired’s
“Danger Room” blog. But instead of finding criminals among the general
population, DARPA wants to find troops at risk of endangering
themselves or their compatriots.

Recent incidents such as the fatal shootings at Fort Hood and the
release of classified information via WikiLeaks has some military
leaders on edge.

“The idea behind the Anomaly Detection at Multiple Scales, or ADAMS,
effort is to sift through ‘massive datasets’ to find the warning signs
of looming homicide, suicide or other destructive behavior,” writes
Spencer Ackerman for “Danger Room.”

He goes on to quote a DARPA statement: “The focus is on malevolent
insiders that started out as ‘good guys.’ The specific goal of [ADAMS]
is to detect anomalous behaviors before or shortly after they turn.”
