Digitaler Salon – Catch me if you scan

Cops of the future are equipped with artificial intelligence. Face recognition and algorithms fed with police data promise to track down future burglars and to locate violent people. The promise is great but can predictive policing - police work based on predictions of crime - really lower the level of crime? Besides data protection concerns, the question arises as to who benefits from it - and who suffers from it. In the USA, you can already see that algorithms partially reinforce racist and discriminative structures. Can similar conditions occur in Germany at all? And what happens to our society when the presumption of inocence is no longer the highest legal good? Do we want to live in such a preventive society?
