Famous Pentagon mad-scientist bureau DARPA says it would like some miracle software to help hard-pressed US spooks and military intelligence officers trawl through the massive troves of imagery retrieved from gadgetry seized in the ongoing massive campaign of special-forces raids across southwest Asia. The new project has been …
The CIA has the Intersect already...DARPA only need to make a call to the Buy More :-)
?VMR-I-Image obtained, processing...
...click click click...
?VMR-I-Subject identified - it's that same bloke in balaclava with an AK-47!
Can't they just make a call to the producers of CSI, they've got this software already :-)
Seriously though, I work for a CCTV distributor and we often get people asking for this kind of stuff, and the usual comment when I say it's not something you can do is "well I saw them do it on CSI last week" - and these are CCTV professionals, not Joe Public.
I was also asked for "a really big camera, you know, like the one Google Earth uses", I gave that guy the number for NASA...
...Give 'em the public number for the NSA!
Amazingly there are a number of ways to contact the NSA
Or you could just send yourself an email headed "Death to the President" and a representative will be in touch shortly...
Can't they just upload them all to Facebook and let their facial recognition system loose on them?
Not a terrist
I expect they will have a lot of good quality photographs of familiar London landmarks in there.
You've made it sound like the SAS and the SBS are considered "tier two".
the ass raping Labour gave to the countries financies, I'd say they probably are T2 until 2015 at least.. by which time, the Tories will be back in opposition, and the military will have to bend over for another round.
.... all this Stuff from the home (hideout), of a man who, reportedly, spent years being totally paranoid about anybody coming within ten miles of him with an active cell phone / laptop, or even one that was still "warm". I guess he must have been getting old and crotchety allowing this mountain of techno-junk to fill up his lair.
Did they find his tin-foil hat I wonder ?
Surely by the time DARPA have developed this wonder-software,
Google will have released a better version?
Perhaps it's easier just to wait.
So it's the millspec version of The Porn Detector stick.
One suspects the SAS/SBS might dispute being considered "Tier 2"...
Same thing with the SEALs and the rest
In the corporate world we'd "rebaseline" a situation like this and call the "Super Elites" Tier 0.
As to not offend the rest of the Elites by demoting them to Tier 2... we'd still call them Tier 1.
Porn detection stick
Does it work with pornstars of any race?
Does it work with hentai?
It's supposed to, I am not sure about the accuracy when it comes to hentai though.
