More than a half-century ago, science fiction writer Philip K. Dick imagined a world in which a “precrime” agency made that possible. Today, a handful of tools promise to help nudge society in that direction.
"Can Software Predict Crime? Maybe So, but No Better Than a Human" is from the January 19, 2018 U.S. section of The New York Times. It was written by Niraj Chokshi and narrated by Barbara Benjamin-Creel.
