7/28/10 Google’s Secret Time Machine Investment: Recorded Future,
Exclusive Google Ventures and CIA In-Q-Tel, Invest in Web Monitoring Recoded Future
Recorded Future scours tens of thousands of websites, blogs and Twitter accounts to find relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents — present and still-to-come.... the company says its temporal analytics engine “goes beyond search” by “looking at ‘invisible links’ between documents about the same, or related, entities and events.”... to figure out for each who was involved, where it happened and when it might go down. Recorded Future then plots that chatter, showing online “momentum” for any given event....
It’s not the first time Google has done business with US spy agencies. Long before it reportedly enlisted the help of the National Security Agency to secure its networks, Google sold equipment to the secret signals-intelligence group. In-Q-Tel backed the mapping firm Keyhole, which was bought by Google in 2004 — and then became the backbone for Google Earth.....
US spy agencies, through In-Q-Tel, have invested in a number of firms to help them better find that (hidden) information. Visible Technologies crawls over half a million web 2.0 sites a day, scraping more than a million posts and conversations taking place on blogs, YouTube, Twitter and Amazon. Attensity applies the rules of grammar to the so-called “unstructured text” of the web to make it more easily digestible by US databases. Keyhole (now Google Earth) is a staple of targeting cells in military-intelligence units. Recorded Future strips from web pages the people, places and activities they mention... examines when and where these events happened (“spatial and temporal analysis”) and the tone of the document (“sentiment analysis”). Then it applies artificial-intelligence algorithms to tease out connections between the players. Recorded Future maintains an index with more than 100 million events, hosted on Amazon.com servers....“We’re right there as it happens. We can assemble actual real-time dossiers on people.”...
