The documentary film explores the intentions behind the design and the implication of Pre-Crime algorithms. The algorithm tries to pin point people that might be prone to predict or be victim of a crime. Thus the police hopes to mitigate crimes before they occur. The algorithm uses score system, which is prone to select people from minorities. Further its implications are far reaching and raise many questions related to human rights and freedoms, privacy and inequality. The film explores many cities that employ the system – Kent, UK, Chicago, IL; Paris, France; Fresno, CA.
