Short description

Immerse yourself in the world of Predictive Policing, where predictions are made based on data and algorithms, and where everyone is a potential suspect. As a user in this gaming experience, learn how the use of algorithms and predictive softwares can have consequences in the near future… Pre-Crime is an interactive simulation browser-experience and mobile app that places you into a memory system. Pre-Crime wants you to experience how predictive policing is impacting you and society, and how we collectively might still have impact upon our manufactured memory systems. The goal of the interactive experience is to reduce the crime rate in the chosen city through predictive policing and at the same time protect the citizens rights and be as objective and non-discriminatory as possible - basically to come up with the best predictive software possible. The user will see how choosing different objectives for the algorithm (e.g. number of arrests, unemployment rate, racially motivated crimes) produces different outcomes with far fetching consequences. Will the user and their choices of pre-crime systems be able to assure the public and reduce criminal activity? Can they predict future crimes and criminals whilst also protecting the citizens’ fundamental rights? The gaming experience is part of a larger cross media project that includes the documentary Pre-Crime by Matthias Heeder and Monika Hielscher which premiered at Hot Docs in May 2017.

How innovative is the project

Due to our open-source data method and the simulated algorithmic events inspired by predictive policing nowadays, our simulation not only offers a testing method to these techniques, it also shows how your personal qualities and failures influence what comes next: the self-learning machines that we give birth to but that we continuously lose control of. Our project questions the relationship between ourselves and the big data we constitute. How can this data be misused and what role does bias play? And how does our moral code relate to our feelings of security?
