« The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for policing is a hot topic. This is not only because of the hopes and promises placed in it, but also because it is sharply criticized by human rights activists, ethicists and social scientists. In particular, the use and implementation of so-called predictive policing technologies (PPT) is being disapproved of by many entities. The criticism of these systems refers to some of its well-known aspects, such as lack of accountability, problematic biases in the data sets, intrusion into personal rights, and superficiality. Despite the criticism, PPTs are now regularly used across criminal justice and law
enforcement institutions. Judges, parole boards, police commanders, and patrol officers make daily assessments, evaluations, and assignments based on these technologies. They insist that automated data analysis makes institutional decision-making more effective, consistent, neutral, and, most importantly, it
makes policing smarter. »
