The government's interest in using technology to detect terrorism and other threats has led to increased use of data mining. A technique for extracting useful information from large volumes of data, data mining offers potential benefits but also raises privacy concerns when the data include personal information.
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) reports that is was asked to review a data mining tool called ADVISE (Analysis, Dissemination, Visualization, Insight, and Semantic Enhancement) that was created with the help of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Specifically, GAO was asked to review tool's planned capabilities, uses, and associated benefits while evaluating whether its use could cause potential privacy issues.
