Algorithms are being used -- experimentally -- to write news articles from raw data, while Donald Trump's presidential campaign was helped by behavioral marketers who used an algorithm to locate the highest concentrations of "persuadable voters." http://www.blacklistednews.com/How_algo … 8/Y/M.html
and now this:
"Courtrooms across the country use risk scores, also known as risk assessments, to rate a defendant’s risk of future crime produced by the algorithm “proved remarkably unreliable in forecasting violent crime: Only 20 percent of the people predicted to commit violent crimes actually went on to do so.” In fact, the algorithm was “somewhat more accurate” than a coin flip." - http://projectcensored.org/judges-acros … re-crimes/
What was that movie that predicted this? - Oh yeah, Minority Report (2002)
Seems that the predictive policing is as accurate as Punxsutawney Phil.
This seems unlikely. Possible, but unlikely - if you simply predict that every violent criminal will return to jail for a new crime you will be correct more often than that. 27.2%, actually.
