Brave New World of Anomaly Detection

Abby Zimet
The military's high-tech Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is trying to identify the next Fort Hood or Wikileaks candidates before, not after, they act
by working their way through "massive data sets" to find "malevolent insiders that started out as
guys.'" Alas, the so-called Anomaly Detection at Multiple Scales
project may or may not be able to reliably predict future behavior by
sifting through your emails.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
