175. And, profiling thru statistical "high terrorism factor"- Seisint's MATRIX
See post #144
Seisint denies that the program is still in effect, but questions remain as to whether they could bring it back whenever they desire -- the capability is there.

MATRIX, a database contractor gave U.S. and Florida authorities the names of 120,000 people who showed a statistical likelihood of being terrorists -- sparking some investigations and arrests...

The "high terrorism factor" scoring system also became a key selling point for the involvement of the database company, Seisint Inc., in the MATRIX project...

Seisint and the law enforcement officials who oversee MATRIX insist that the terrorism scoring system ultimately was kept out of the project, largely because of privacy concerns.
