Predictive policing uses Foursquare to spy on taxis and public transportation

<p>Thanks to 'Foursquare', soon law enforcement will be able to spy on anyone's travel habits without a warrant. Last week, a Penn State article, revealed that Foursquare, allowed researchers to collect data (spy) on everyone's taxi, bus and train rides all in the name of 'predictive policing'. Analysis of data from points of interest in Chicago -- including restaurants, shops, nightclubs and transit stations -- designated by members of FourSquare, a social media site, along with the city's taxi flow information, offered significantly more accurate estimates of crime rates compared to traditional means.</p>
