'Big Brother' watching new super diary?
Tuesday, June 3, 2003 Posted: 9:31 AM EDT (1331 GMT)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Pentagon project to develop a digital super diary that records heartbeats, travel, Internet chats -- everything a person does -- also could provide private companies with powerful software to analyze behavior.

That has privacy experts worried.

Known as LifeLog, the project aims to capture and analyze a multimedia record of everywhere a subject goes and everything he or she sees, hears, reads, says and touches. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, has solicited bids and hopes to award four 18-month contracts beginning this summer.

DARPA's research has changed lives far beyond the U.S. military before; it developed what became the Internet and the global positioning satellite system. The LifeLog research is unclassified, so its components could eventually be used in the private sector.

DARPA is also developing new anti-terrorism tools but says LifeLog is not among them.

Rather, the agency calls it a tool to capture "one person's experience in and interactions with the world" through a camera, microphone and sensors worn by the user.

More importantly, LifeLog's goal is to create breakthrough software that "will be able to find meaningful patterns in the timetable, to infer the user's routines, habits and relationships with other people, organizations, places and objects," according to Pentagon documents reviewed by The Associated Press.

DARPA's Jan Walker said LifeLog is intended for those who agree to be monitored. It could enhance the memory of military commanders and improve computerized military training by chronicling how users learn and then tailoring training accordingly, officials said.


LifeLog is a small problem, because by the time anything meanigful comes from it, hopefully, the government will see it as the bottomless moneypit really is. This is a quaint little notion that gets researches salivating, but in reality it will takes billions of dollars to even get it past the "some nut case wearing a camera for the rest of his life stage"...and right now, hopefully, anyone who tries to strap a kid with this will have their a$$ hauled up before Children's Services so fast the recording of it will take two weeks to catch up...plus there will always be glory seekers and idiots who will willingly volunteer for this kind of nonsense. Just look at the jerks who will do anything to get on those stupid "reality" shows.

TIA is worrisome because there is enough info fabout everybody floating around in many places, but it is not centraized. The fact that a government agency wants to centralize it is the worrisome factor, not things that could maybe be in 5 to 50 years. The dayam bureaucrats do not need to have a central database. And TIA is doable with today's technology...

Child abuse, rape, theft, murder. I can see how this can be used, but what's with the little things about, like the books you read, the TV shows you watch, the music you listen to? Is that just to prevent piracy and copy infringement, or is there something bigger going on here? And what about doctor/patient confidentiality? Those 'nanotubes' (AKA 'Buckytubes') can report back every little molecule, including parts of the brain!

New_Raider, Consider getting out more, take up a hobby or two. :) There is so much to worry about in the world that it is best to think about other things some of the time.
