Big Brother lives:
Researchers are looking to develop an intelligent image system that can monitor large areas, perhaps miles wide, identify potential threats based on the correlation of events and anomalies it detects, and issue timely alerts with few false alarms. DARPA's PerSEAS program is developing algorithms to associate these fragments of information in order to identify localized events. Within these localized events, algorithms that discover relationships and anomalies that are indicative of suspicious behavior, match previously learned threat activity, or match user defined threat activity should also be incorporated.
