One of the A particularly noteworthy example of the application of prediction technology is the story of Robert McDaniel, narrated by journalist Matt Stroud. at Verge in May 2021. McDaniel is a resident of Austin, a suburb of Chicago that killed 72 people, on average 10 percent of the city’s total, in 2020 only. Although McDaniel had no criminal record (arrested for selling a pot and shooting dice), the Chicago Police Department confirmed in 2013 that he was “an interesting man” – literally. Mu 2011-16 CBS crime drama of that name, “machines,” produced by the protagonist of the show, may prove that a person may be a victim or a perpetrator of violence, but not the other. Similarly, a CPD-based program showed that McDaniel had more than 99.9 percent of Chicago residents to take part in the shooting, though the part of the weapon they may have is unknown.
With that “intelligence,” the Chicago police put McDaniel on the Strategic Subject List, later called the “temperature list,” and kept a close eye on him, although he did not suspect him of any crime. Because some of the incidents were obvious, it suggested to others in his community that he might have some kind of connection with the police — that he was probably a storyteller, a very destructive story.
Apparently, McDaniel has been shot twice since his first appearance with the CPD: for the first time in 2017, probably due to an announcement he made that year in German literature, Pre-Crime, who hoped to help sanctify his holy name; and more recently in 2020. He told Verge that both shootings were due to CPD implantation, and because of the suspicion that he was complying with the rules. Stroud writes: “In McDaniel’s view, the heat series triggered a set of problems that he had set out to avoid: It predicted a shooting that would not have happened if he had not predicted the shooting.”
This is true, but there is a deeper way to look here. Because of the police data from the past, McDaniel’s neighborhood, so the people in it, were described as violent. The program also stated that the future will be the same — that is, there will be no future, but just a repetition of the past, just like that. This is not a self-fulfilling prophecy, although it is: It is a system designed to bring the past, and thus prevent the world from changing.
Program to realized McDaniel appears to have been designed for CPD by engineers at the Illinois Institute of Technology, according to the first report is Stroud. The CPD program identified about 400 people at risk of violence and put them at risk heat list. The program began in 2012 and was discontinued in 2019, as predicted that year. Chicago city government report which led to his concerns, including the accuracy of his findings and information about data sharing with other organizations. The traditional CPD algorithm is said to be targeted at individuals, and may be similar to the various programs used by the police and the military that people are unaware of. For example, in 2018, journalist Ali Winston told The Verge that the Palantir monitoring company, founded by Peter Thiel, was formed. secretly testing similar technologies in New Orleans since 2012 without informing city officials.
