Chen is either lying or fooling himself when he says they are using their research to 'study societal change'. He must have gone to school with Rumsfeld and Cheney.

'terrorist' is a code word in any human tracking or identification project that means 'we're only after the bad guys'.
Thats all great until the rules change and they are cleaning up society of 'wrong thought' and anyone outside the new acceptable thought guidelines goes to prison camps or mental institution camps.
Further, by patterning 'types' they can begin to get closer to 'minority report' type controls that will evaluate and imprison people based on algorithmic potentials for crime.
Ah well, the future is the future and we'll be there sooner or later.
Many good things will happen too no doubt. For the conformists!

The term 'terrorist' was used so many times in the article, I found it nothing less than terrorizing, since we're left thinking the program could eventually deem anyone with an opinion as being one. It isn't until we reach the end of the article, we learn the program allows for false positives. I feel so much safer now the program can tell the difference between a good guy and a bad guy.

terrorist are just the boogey man of this new american century, 3000 people a year die from terorist related activities...and how long before this "technology" isnt used by just the government for tracking, but by ad agencies, and those with less than honorable intent, and of course how long before its misused by the government to track dissent.... remember our forefather were radicals... to great britain.... protect your anonymity while you can

How interesting that this article was posted at all (for reasons of national security LOL). All the issues discussed would no doubt set off the Dark Web engine due to it's content alone. That said anyone who reads this (let alone posts) would be earmarked as "potential targets" and then tagged as someone to monitor for future potential risk. Oops, is that someone at the door now??
FYI the Internet IS the virus.
