Predictive program much? In 2002, Hollywood released Steven Spielberg’s adaptation to futurist Philip K. Dick’s short story “The Minority Report”.

Today, predictive policing programs are used by police departments in six U.S. states, the UK, China, and the Netherlands. 1984 on steroids has arrived.
