Algorithms used by police authorities as a basis to evaluate how dangerous people are before they have even committed a crime. Something that sounds like a vision of the future is already reality in cities all over the world. But how reliable is this type of police prediction system, which is implemented in places like Los Angeles and London? And what are the social consequences of this constantly growing need for security at all costs? The documentary film by Monika Hielscher and Matthias Heeder aims to resolve these questions, and in the process it illuminates the perspectives of police officers, AI scientists, and people who have come under the spotlight of these technologies.
