Rapid Information Overlay Technology (Riot) - Tracks Users from SNSes


This is a pretty wicked video of Raytheon's Rapid Information Overlay Technology (RIOT) software.

It tracks people through social networking sites (SNS) and gives you a lot of amount of information.

In this video obtained by the Guardian, Raytheon's 'principal investigator' Brian Urch explains how the Rapid Information Overlay Technology (Riot) software uses photographs on social networks. These images sometimes contain latitude and longitude details – automatically embedded by smartphones within so-called 'exif header data'. Riot pulls out this information, analysing not only the photographs posted by individuals, but also the location where these images were taken

"Nice Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookie you ate from Mrs. Fields (TM) that you ate today. Please Opt-Out of us using it from out next social network surveillance campaign."  :P

Scrub that data!

A lady I have a great deal of respect for handles the issue of personal privacy an interesting way.

Her advice? "Whenever asked, lie. Lie about everything." ;D
