big data possbile defense against school shooting tragedies?
since big data can help spot terrorists with combination of wide variety of profiling, such as, identity of people not involved in agriculture purchasing nitrate fertilizers in large quantities, one time that bought a large truck in the last 3 months etc etc, from thousands of servers world wide, couldn't this same capability be used to spot a similar type of wacko planning a school tragedy like Sandy Hook Elementary? Cray is supposed to be leader of Big Data. Would appreciate a knowledgeable respondent.
Yes you are correct and that's what Cray all about. Crays data center will be routing all cell phone traffic - email, text, phone .
The center will be finished 1 quarter of next year 2013 .Just google it.Basically will be high speed sorting, to detect patterns of naughty folks planning naughty stuff.
