Click through the story and let us dive into a topic full of questions: Where are the limits to using artificial intelligence? How important are transparency and data safety for you? What happens when prediction methods make mistakes?

Law enforcement agencies like the police and public prosecutors around the world are trying to use software to forecast crime. The goal of “Predictive Policing?” is to question the use of modern AI technologies. Is it okay to target specific locations or people in the analysis of crime prediction or prevention? The resulting social biases, missing transparency in calculations, and strict surveillance programs form one of the main points of criticism for these approaches.
