No Hiding From Darpa's ‘Social Interaction’ Sensors

A new Pentagon experiment called "Assessment of Asymmetric Social Indicators" is setting out to build a sensor that picks up on the group dynamics of military units. The technology would be used for "measuring, and assessing social interactions in military contexts," creating analytical snapshots of groups in "training, medical and mental health settings, [and] security."
