Marketplace Tech

with Ben Johnson

Marketplace Tech for Wednesday, August 27, 2014

First, we hear from Andy Tatem, a researcher who looks at cell phone data to predict population movements, about how this kind of data could be used to predict and monitor the spread of Ebola. Then, Brian Tong, an editor at CNET and host of The Apple Byte, talks about the iPhone 6 rumors that are probably true, and the ones he wishes were true. Finally, Patrick Tucker, technology editor for Defense One and author of The Naked Future: What Happens in a World That Anticipates Your Every Move, stops by to talk about two examples of data-driven, predictive policing in action.
