The real Minority Report

Posted: April 23, 2014 in Uncategorized

Some Sci Fi movies are quite good in forecasting the future.

 

A few of you will remember the movie Minority Report – where some specially bred humans could forecast future crime.

Thanks to DARPA (the Tech Division of the Pentagon) we are actually close to this reality.

Naturally in order to fight terrorism they have developed a new software that employs historical data of crime/terrorist patterns and chatter from Twitter to forecast future crimes.

Apparently they are having quite a good success.
