Doug Vining Machines that spot criminals before the crime

Can a computer identify a criminal just by looking at their face, without comparing it to a database? Apparently yes:

"The worry, of course, is how humans might use these machines. It’s not hard to imagine how this process could be applied to data sets of, say, passport or driving license photos for an entire country. It would then be possible to pick out those people identified as law-breakers, whether or not they had committed a crime.

That’s a kind of Minority Report scenario in which law-breakers could be identified before they had committed a crime."

Doug Vining Big (dirty) Data is watching you

When is predictive policing on the wrong side of the law? When the AI system it's based on is built or trained on corrupt data!
