Software predicting when and where a crime is about to be committed: What may sound like a scenario from science fiction in the style of ”Minority Report” has in the meantime become reality in cities such as Chicago, London or Munich. And whether we are dangerous subjects is already being decided by computers these days. What kind of boundaries are there for the so-called Predictive Policing? Which advantages, which disadvantages come with algorithms-aided police work? These and other questions are raised in the movie ”Pre-Crime”, directed by Monika Hielscher and Matthias Heeder.

The movie will be presented on July 31, 2019, starting at 6:30 pm. The location is the Filmhaus, a cinema in the city center of Saarbrücken, Germany. After that, EIS staff member Andreas Sesing from the Institute for Computational Law will serve as an expert in a public discussion. Admission to the event is free of charge.
