I think it can. I don't think Finch has access to that data though. He said his backdoor only allows him access to the SSNs, that way no one will notice he is looking.What I can't buy though, is the idea that the machine is able to identify someone as being involved in a small emergency without being able to tell (or being programmed to tell) whether the "person of interest" is the villain or victim.
A good show doesn't even finish without a thread!Surprised? It's been over for less than 1 1/2 hours?
There actually is something like this although not as sophisticated as this premise. The WebBot project prediected in June of 2001 that a world changing event would happen in the next few month.I can suspend my disbelief enough to imagine that there's such a machine which is evaluating threats---I can even imagine that it might have a list of threats which it dismissing at not affecting national security.
I agree. This was really the only new show I was looking forward to and was quite disappointed by it.It wasn't half as clever as I'd hoped when I saw the first promo way back when. Nor half as exciting.
A bit of Minority Report??? They freakin copied it scene for scene. And then they even used one of the killers from the movie.I liked it. Fits into the CBS model as being a bit of a procedural but with a Minority Report flavor to it.
