  • SYNOPSIS

    PRE-CRIME CALCULATOR is an interactive experience that takes you to the world of predictive policing. How much of a potential suspect or a victim are you in the eyes of the system? And what are the areas in your city you should avoid in the next week, not to get involved in crime?

    With the help of a pre-crime algorithm, the calculator evaluates the personal danger potential of users and determines the potential role they could play in a crime – as perpetrator or victim.
