It was reported on U.S. news today that a U.S. military Predator drone was used last night to collect data during the riot in Minneapolis – St. Paul, USA. The drone flew in circles for what appeared to be a 10 mile radius. The news report said that a large amount of personal data was being collected by the Predator during its sweeps.
Thus, another instance of the intersection of data collection and security. I’m looking forward to reading more about this particular data collection activity.
