Submission + - Oakland is building a Big Data center for police surveillance

rjmarvin writes: $7 million in federal grant money originally tasked with terrorism prevention is now being used to fund construction of a new data center http://sdt.bz/64221 in Oakland to electronically gather and analyze data around the clock from a variety of sensors and databases, displaying selected info on a bank of giant monitors. The center will mine massive data streams, helping the police department tap into 911 calls, port and traffic cameras, license plate readers, gunshot sensors, social media posts and commuters’ electronic toll payments. It takes the buzzwords "Big Data" and "surveillance state" to a whole new level.
