The National Security Agency is funding a “top secret” $60 million dollar data analysis lab at North Carolina State University which will scrutinize information collected from private emails, phone calls and Google searches.
“The Laboratory for Analytic Sciences will be launched in a Centennial Campus building that will be renovated with money from the federal agency, but details about the facility are top secret. Those who work in the lab will be required to have security clearance from the U.S. government,” reports the News & Observer.
The project was initially supposed to be revealed in June, but the scandal surrounding the NSA’s PRISM surveillance program prompted the university to delay the announcement, with faculty staff citing, “that bit out of The Guardian (newspaper) on NSA collecting phone records of Verizon customers.”
