mining your business''Rise of data mining ''

Data mining is the process of automatically searching large volumes of data for patterns. Once objectives are set, artificial intelligence does the dirty work. As an example, Walmart captures point-of-sale transactions and continuously transmits information to a massive data warehouse. Walmart's suppliers then analyze the data to identify customer buying patterns at the store display level.

In a report entited "Data Mining: Staking a Claim on Your Privacy," Ontario Information and Privacy Commissioner Ann Cavoukian stated that data mining "may be the most fundamental challenge that privacy advocates will face in the next decade…"

Everyday transactions, Web browsing and interactions with government all generate a "data trail." The number of records generated by our actions is increasing as well as the amount of data gathered for each type of record.

Latanya Sweeney, assistant professor of computer science and public policy and director of the laboratory for international data privacy at Carnegie Mellon University, has developed a rough measure of the growth in personal data, which she calls the disk storage per person (DSP). The DSP is simply the amount of hard disk storage sold each year divided by the world population. This number has grown from 20KB of data in 1983 to 28MB in 1996 and then to 472MB in 2000.

Sweeney also found with her own research that 87 percent of the U.S. population can be individually identified based solely on gender, birth date and ZIP code.


The National Security Agency advised President Bush in early 2001 that it had been eavesdropping on Americans during the course of its work. Suspected terrorists and foreigners believed to have ties to terrorist groups were being monitored, according to a declassified document entitled "Transition 2001."

TruthOut.org
On orders from Defense Department officials and President Bush, the agency kept a running list of the names of Americans in its system and made it readily available to a number of senior officials in the Bush administration, these sources said, which in essence meant the NSA was conducting a covert domestic surveillance operation in violation of the law.

In November 2002, The New York Times reported about a tracking system being developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) called "Total Information Awareness" (TIA). TIA aimed to capture the "information signature" of people so the government could track the activity of potential terrorists and criminals. So everyone had to be monitored in order to pick out who the bad guys were!

It has become widely excepted knowledge that the U.S. government knew about the September 11 attacks before it happened; here's why:

Wikipedia.org
Data mining has been cited as the method by which the U.S. Army unit Able Danger supposedly had identified the 9/11 attack leader, Mohamed Atta, and three other 9/11 hijackers as possible members of an al Qaeda cell operating in the U.S. more than a year before the attack.

"One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
