Artificial Intelligence Can Tell If You’re Going To Be A Criminal, Says Study

One such foreshadowing short story was Philip K. Dick’s The Minority Report, which was later made into a feature film directed by Steven Spielberg. In that tale, three mutant beings called “precogs” are able to foretell criminal behavior before it actually happens.
