Google Glass and Predictive Analytics

April 13, 2014

I read “I Was Assaulted for Wearing Google Glass.” This is a sad commentary on our times. Will I be assaulted in Harrod’s Creek for driving my Kia Soul and wearing a T shirt that says “ Seavey’s Dog Kennel”? After I read the item, I wondered, “Why can’t Google’s predictive analytics be used to display to a Glass wearer that the assault risk level?” A color coded scheme could be used based on previous Glass users’ encounters, GPS data, and other inputs available to the Google / Recorded Future systems.

I noted this passage:

Why were people laughing at my misfortune or implying I somehow deserved it?

Beats me.
