Software That Predicts Criminal Behavior



Call me skeptical but I have a hard time believing that this will work. Leave it to Washington DC to spend money on something that didn’t even work in the movies.

Developed by Richard Berk, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, the software is already used in Baltimore and Philadelphia to predict which individuals on probation or parole are most likely to murder and to be murdered. In his latest version, the one being implemented in D.C., Berk goes even further, identifying the individuals most likely to commit crimes other than murder.
