Google finds future quitters

When you’re a company big on data crunching, when you have a file, you can’t help it: You must explore it and draw conclusions. This is what Google is doing with its Human Resource files. They use algorithms to identify more easily people ready for a promotion, for an additional review, or people on the verge of quitting.

This is probably quite feasible supposing that you have enough data and enough CPU/database power. Google has it all (and plenty of power for sure).

I am not quite sure if this undeniable technical step forward is really good news for individual liberties.
