Binge-Watching and Predictive Policing

Agatha, one of the precogs in Minority Report (2002)
As eloquently said by Uncle Ben in Spiderman

While predictive modeling can be an extremely powerful and useful tool, “with great power comes great responsibility.”

  • Are we complying with laws and regulations, including individuals’ privacy rights?
  • Is data aggregation and linkage creating privacy or data security classification issues?
  • Are there any identifiable biases in the way the data is collected or used in the model? Can these issues be minimized?
  • How transparent is the model?
  • How are the model’s predictions going to be utilized? What are the consequences of such results and the associated cost-benefits?
