smile... you're on crimbo camera

the independent had an article today about a camera system which is in development which can be used to predict if people are going to commit a crime.

apparently it has been tested in liverpool st. station (in london) where i commute to and from pretty much every day. i wonder if i got flagged as being a potential criminal?

as discussed on slashdot this is pretty difficult to implement but being cynical conspiracy theorists they all immediately started comparing it to george orwell's thought police!
