Growing up, one of my favorite movies was Steven Spielberg's Minority Report. I was fascinated by the idea that a crime could be prevented before it occurred. More interesting to me at the time was the futuristic role that'super intelligent' technology – something depicted as more sophisticated and advanced than humans – could play in doing this accurately. Recently, the role that pre-crime and artificial intelligence can play in our world has been explored in episodes of the popular Netflix TV show Black Mirror, focusing on the debate between free will and determinism. Working in counter-terrorism, I know that the use of artificial intelligence in the security space is fast becoming a reality.
