Gigapixel Image Understanding: Argus plus Predator

This WGBH/Nova featurette contains an interview with a BAE engineer. In Robot Futures I talk about image understanding meeting very high resolution analysis, and this is an example of not only what is possible in the future, but what is likely fielded today: billion-pixel video combined with the ability to track, from 17,000 feet up, the movement of all cars, all pedestrians, even all birds in the massive field of view.  As data mining and analysis catches up with our incredible ability to extract information, expect all this information that is stored today to yield patterns, intelligence and, one day, knowledge to be used and misused by governments and corporations in the know.
