"Is it possible to find out who the next mass shooter is going to be? According to former NBC Chairman, Bob Wright, it’s possible to use Google to do it. Wright has already briefed Trump on how to take advantage of big tech algorithms to determine who could be behind the next mass shooting. The biggest problem is that this method could also affect plenty of innocent people.
The White House is currently refusing to respond to questions about whether President Trump is considering the use of big tech companies like Google to identify potential mass shooters.
A longtime friend of Donald Trump is also a former NBC executive. Bob Wright is one of the top proponents of using big tech companies to collect data on users. It could potentially identify and prevent violent actions. Wright is using his friendship with Trump as a way of urging the Trump administration to take this step.
Reports have already shown that Wright has been briefing Trump officials on a proposal that would create an agency known as Health Advanced Research Projects Agency (HARPA) to explore ways of using data to prevent violent incidents.
Ivanka Trump has been asking questions of what the new agency could do, including whether it could actually prevent a mass shooting. This came following the shootings that happened in El Paso and Dayton, back to back.
Based on the proposal for HARPA, they would use “breakthrough technologies” focused on sensitivity and high specificity in order to early diagnosis neuropsychiatric violence. Real-time data analytics, as well as a multi-modalities solution, would create an accurate diagnosis."
