Predictive Policing: Next Frontier of High-Tech Crime Fighting?

Hosted by

Powerful computers tell WalMart that when the weather turns bad, customers want strawberry pop tarts -- not just any pop tarts, but strawberry. When a tropical depression occurs on the ocean, WalMart has strawberry pop tarts on store shelves before the storm hits the Florida coast. The LA Police Department thinks that kind of computer-generated predictive analysis can be applied to law enforcement.
