Author: John Honovich, Published on Jan 06, 2010

In an aggressive move, AgentVi claims that their analytics could have prevented the airport terminal shutdown in Newark on Jan 3, 2010. They claim that a "simple upgrade to the airport's surveillance system" of Agent Vi's products "would have brought about a very different outcome."

This claim is questionable:
