Software that predicts where and when criminals will strike. Today police computers are already deciding whether we are dangerous or not; in Chicago, Beijing, London or Munich. The method is called predictive policing. It draws on Big Data as a source that we ourselves continuously fill with personal information. How much freedom are we prepared to relinquish for the promise of absolute security? And can we really rely on the judgment of computers and algorithms? Pre-Crime travels halfway around the world and introduces people who work with this technology every day and help develop it further – as well as people who have become its victims.
