Automated data collection has fostered the use of data mining for crime detection. Banks, large corporations, insurance companies, government and security organizations are increasingly mining data (including personal data) about individuals to detect any fraud, crime or any potential security incident well in time before it causes any serious damage.
"Privacy preserving data mining" is designed to ensure privacy of individuals while performing data mining. Do you think privacy preserving data mining methods can not be used for crime detection? Discuss.
