Santa Cruz Cops Experiment With ‘Predictive Policing’

“The police department in Santa Cruz, California, has begun an experiment that uses a mathematical algorithm to predict when and where certain crimes will be committed, and puts police on the scene before they happen. So far police have arrested five people using this technique of “predictive policing” and the rates of certain categories of crimes in the city have dropped significantly, perhaps as a result. The program has correctly predicted 40 percent of the crimes it was designed to monitor.”

Indeed.

The race is on.

But, remember, cybercrime laws are really really complicated, due to jurisdiction issues.

Will the Space Station Be Abandoned?

Like the Mary Celeste, the International Space Station (ISS) could be floating empty, devoid of humans by November. However, unlike the Mary Celeste, we’ll know exactly what happened to the crew.
In the wake of the Russian Progress vehicle crash shortly after launch on Aug. 24, a chain of events has been set into motion that could result in the decision not to fly astronauts into orbit. If this happens, the ISS will be temporarily mothballed before the end of the year to avoid landing astronauts during the harsh Kazakh winter.
