Are you sure about this?  Couldn't a user provide their own keystrokes,
mouse movements, etc and fine-tune a personalised model on their own system?

the prediction. even if you could make an open source, open data

Certainly a model that uses many peoples' data would be stronger than one
with only one person's data.  But wouldn't it be _better_ to have this data
out in the public than held privately by marketing and military

Then people could tell when they were being profiled, because the data
would be added to a public store.

I'm sure there is public technology around behavior prediction among the
research communities already.  It's been around for a while.
