This CIA-funded tool predicts crime before it happens

Palantir — a CIA-backed startup created, in part, by PayPal’s billionaire co-founder Peter Thiel in 2004 — is a little-known tool that’s changing the world right under our noses.

Once used to predict roadside bombs in Iraq based on patterns of previous deployment, Palantir is now being deployed here at home for everything from law enforcement to finance.

Something similar was tried in Chicago to predict shootings. It was a miserable failure.
Seems the pre-identified victims actually became the shooters. Ooops.

From the article.
"But it’s on the streets of Chicago and Los Angeles that Dick’s premonition of an Orwellian future is becoming reality. There, Palantir’s algorithms monitor previous crime data to create “hot spots” law enforcement officials then use to determine which areas need a larger police presence."


They have never let a failed theory stop them yet!

This tool would probably have more success with the Clintons. :D
