Life Imitates Art - "The Minority Report" & Palantir Co.

From The Guardian of the UK

Palantir, the hi-tech US firm, operates along lines that call to mind the methods used by law enforcement in sci-fi movie 'Minority Report'. But it is all for real.

Peter Thiel’s CIA-backed, data-mining firm honed its ‘crime predicting’ techniques against insurgents in Iraq. The same methods are now being sold to police departments.

Will they inflame already tense relations between the public and the police?

In humble salute to the brilliant memory of Professor Doctor Maryam Mirzakhani - the glory of all Iranians - whose brief but magnificent mathematical life was cut short by Death.

It is painful to watch the end of yet another promising life.
