Pre Crime, A wave of futuristic technology is beginning to hit law enforcement agencies throughout the country as a new computer program called Pre-Crime software makes its way to Washington DC. The software is developed by a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, called Richard Berk, using algorithms and thousands of historical data to predict whether, when, how and when the person on probation can commit a crime.
Earlier versions of the Pre-Crime software being used in Baltimore and Philadelphia have been able to predict the risk of murder by persons on parole, but the updated version, which just arrived in Washington DC enforcement agencies of law, is able to consider that a step further and predict a variety of different types of crime.
Richard Berk said the main uses of the software to ABC News, saying: “When a person is on probation or parole are supervised by an officer. The question that officials have to answer is” What level of supervision available? ” The software can play an important role in determining bail amounts, and whether a person should leave on bail. In addition to Washington DC, other major cities like Boston, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago will also begin launch the software for its agencies as well.
