So Much Data!


Information Overload Is A Killer?
By Nick Ashton, Founder, CEO,
Tracometry Group of Companies.

“Information overload — an accurate description,” Data is among the most potent weapons of the 21st century. Unprecedented amounts of raw information help the public safety and the military determine what areas to target for reducing or stopping crime and avoidance in the case of IED attacks.

Research shows that the kind of intense multitasking required in such situations can make it hard to tell good information from bad. The law enforce and the military face a balancing act: how to help officers and soldiers exploit masses of data without succumbing to overload and missed objectivity.

Across the law enforcement and the military, the data flow has surged; since the attacks of 9/11, the amount of intelligence gathered by remotely piloted drones and other surveillance technologies has risen 1,600 percent. On the ground, beat cops, command staff, detectives and troops increasingly use hand-held devices to communicate and set investigates. And the computer screens in cars, jet cockpits or back at station or base, can be so packed with data that some, call them “drool buckets” because, they say, they can get lost staring into them.

“There is information overload at every level of public safety, law enforcement, EMS, Fire Emergency Management and the military — from the general to the soldier, the police commander to the beat cop on the ground,” said Nick Ashton, Founder/CEO, Tracometry Group of Companies, whose specialize in street level information gathering, crime or war analytics and Next Event Predictability.

Tracometry Analytics, has developed street smarts, base knowledge of crime fighting analysts algorithms, which when used with data, enhance our abilities and capabilities to collectively utilize data sets and result in predictive analysis.  This is then placed in the hands of ground staff, which includes detectives, beat cops, command staff, soldiers in battle situations and warn them, by highlighting probabilities of incident.  This is the reality of Next Event Predictability.
