Tracking zebras… and consumers
September 22nd, 2007

Wireless networks have been used before to track animals. Now, U.S. researchers are using social networking software to track zebras. They hope to discover how animals interact — especially when lions are near a herd. They also think their software can help ecologists devise new techniques to protect endangered species. They even think that their computational tools can easily be adapted to study our buying habits. Does this mean that we’ll be fitted with a GPS tracking collar before entering a shopping mall?
